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.
I TOLD YOU NOT TO TOUCH IT!!!
CREATOR & DRAMATURG
What if Mr. Ratburn's 3rd grade class finally broke the curse on Elwood City?
Collaboration with Lily Filippatos and Erik Long
CELEBRITY RITUAL: BRITNEY & JANET
A healing ceremony for Britney Spears and Janet Jackson—linked by their shared destructive relationship to celebrity and J*st*n T*mb*rl*ke. A night where we cleanse the past, with verbatim readings of callous tabloids, re-imaginings of iconic (yet damaging) imagery, and an insertion of Instagram into the narrative of paparazzi.
Collaboration with Jordan Reed
