2021 COHORT ARTIST
I am excited to share that I have been selected as a member of the EMERGENYC 2021 Cohort! I will be participating in this residency from April–July 2021.
EMERGENYC is an incubator for artist-activists interested in developing their creative voice, exploring the intersections of art and activism, and connecting to a thriving community of independent practitioners—most of them POC, women, and LGBTQIA+ folks. First launched in 2008 at NYU’s Hemispheric Institute—and now independent, in partnership with BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange and Abrons Arts Center—EMERGENYC offers varied entry points into art and activism, prioritizing process, discovery and reflection, and fostering a brave space for experimentation, risk-taking and community-building.
QUEER & NOW
THE RINSE OFF! (EPISODE 1)
PRODUCER & PERFORMER
Put your claws up! Sophie Dishwater is ready to find love.
Sophie Dishwater is a fabulous fictional sewer fairy-turned-socialite eager to begin a romantic relationship after four years of adjusting to her human skin. THE RINSE OFF! (Episode 1) is the debut episode of Ms. Dishwater’s new virtual reality dating competition series, introducing the six contestants vying for the chance to start a life with her.
Armed with skills in drag, burlesque, and comedy, each romantic suitor delivers their own unique performance to win Sophie’s heart. By the end of the episode, Sophie makes the impossible decision of choosing one of her suitors to send home—good thing she’s got the love and support of Dawn, her pet rat from the sewers! Who will Sophie rinse away?!
