Now playing/SOLD OUT

decolonizing my vagina

Happening as part of Mabou Mines SUITE/SPACE Artist Residency, A ritual performance piece that explores the relationship to self love and self worth as seen through my experiences and identity as a queer fat woman of color who has dated primarily white men. Weaving together music, poetry, and storytelling, these complex intersections of intimacies are brought to life.

cracking open

cracking open is a story about cosmic connections and the bittersweet brutality of love. With poetry written by Cristina Pitter and live cello by Serena Miller, cracking open explores the imprints a soul can leave, the exhilarations and exhaustions of intimacy, and how to restring a heart to play again. Does it play again?
