I went back to Memphis to work with the magnificent, Ari Denison, once again. Brilliant.
I got a call a few months back from an old friend, Laurie Zabele Cawley, to see if I wanted to join her for a split bill show up in her neighborhood at Union College in Schenectady, NY. We'll be debuting a new work titled, 5+1, and restaging our duet, What Was, Never Existed. Amazing.
I'm dancing with not one, but THREE different incredible women in unrelated projects, and I'm so pumped I might drop some cheer-leading moves soon. Sorry, Mom.
I'm teaching at the Gina Gibney Studios - 280 Broadway - as a part of the Access8 program in November. Tuesdays and Thursdays, November 11-20 from 2-4pm for only $8 a class. Sweet.
And, I've been writing so much that I'm pretty sure I need to whip out the plans for a cabin in the middle of nowhere and begin building a place to sneak away for a week or so and write a book. Interesting.
Potentially, I will also be performing in the Never Before, Never Again Festival at the new Triskelion location in Greenpoint, NY with some other East Coast TRANSFormers, but I'll be sure to spread more about that when I hear back from the panel. Nice.
In the midst of all of this excitement and project building, I'm also launching an Indiegogo Fundraiser any day now! The funding is primarily for my dancers - they most certainly deserve more than the absurd amounts of candy I throw at them - and also for the travel upstate, rehearsal space, food, costumes, and other artist collaborations.
I have a stellar composer joining me on this project, Kyle Sorensen, and I'm totally jazzed about debuting a new work with his new score. Bonus - any donations made to the Indiegogo Fundraiser are tax-deductible. How? Because I'm sponsored by Fractured Atlas and they rock.
Stay tuned as I'll be shooting out an email soon with details about our fundraiser and upcoming concert at Union College. I'll also keep updating our Facebook and Twitter with pictures, videos and other shenanigans - because we rarely can keep from laughing for more than twenty minutes.
Toodles, lovers. Dance on.
