Aside from making works for the stage, I am and have been involved with these projects. (What’s a “stage”? What’s the difference? I know…)

.>.>.> SHOW BOX LA
Show Box LA is the umbrella for a number of collaborative artist-led projects and partnerships, initiated in response to a perceived need for ways to share work, ideas, and resources among the dance community, to raise the level of critical dialogue in Los Angeles about dance as an art form, and contribute to the larger conversation about the art and legacy of dance.
.>.>.> itch Dance Journal
itch is an evolving art project qua artist forum which takes the form of a journal. We publish poetry, political rants, scholarly work, one-sentence email responses, cryptic fortune-cookie fortunes, photos, found images, etc., submitted from our highly elastic community of dancers, choreographers, scholars, movers, visual, performance, video, and intermedia artists and the politically inclined, all of whom have divergent interests and practices which constellate around an issue theme in a happenstance yet curiously fortuitous bricolage. Practice participation in the ever unfurling culture of corporeal inquiry and art making, from LA and beyond: insert your thoughts, your body, your voice.
