Calling All Parties collaborated with Jamie Leo on #REFRAME at Art Basel Miami 2016.
Using this printed frame we interacted with many participants and discovered art everywhere.
Very excited about how well received and empowering this project was- planning to bring it back in 2017.

Lived and worked with Elyssa Vulpes.
It was an incredible experience to exchange with artists from all over the world.
Saw amazing work and expanded my artistic perspective. I recommend this festival to everyone.

Front Line was a one woman show with songs written by Elyssa Vulpes and Life of the Party was a three woman interactive party play with projections.

How would it be, if Leaders walked amongst us? This is a video of “If I Ruled the World ” presented at The Albany Neighborhood Senior Center Seniors create a “World Leader Luncheon”. We met to discuss issues of power, leadership, education, health, equality, environment, and more for five months as part of my SPARC Artist Residency. I am honored and humbled by their passion, knowledge, dedication, and openness. I wish all World Leaders could have such conversations and that we as a world would listen to our Elders more. They have a lot of vision to offer. This was an opportunity to play in our imaginations and create a “better world” where voices are heard, ideas are honored, and everyone can become a World Leader.

The duo tell the participants how fabulous they are. The interviews are filmed and projected in different locations during the festival.

Cornerstone Theater

Cornerstone Theater

Working with Cornerstone Theater in East Salinas on Plumas Negras. It is an incredible experience to learn their techniques of creating community engaged theater.  This play has a cast of 39 people, 30 of them have come from the community and bring the vitality and authenticity of their life experience to the story.  Today we are in tech and bringing the pieces together.  This work of bringing important community stories to the community by the community is profoundly moving and I am very excited to see how it is received.

Here is a promo video – enjoy:
