New Performer is a dance work exploring human fashioning, the gaze, selfie culture, and how we confront and seek to transform ourselves as performers in daily life. Collaborators include Tony Carlson, Isabella Hreljanovic, Amity Jones, and Tara Sheena. Its first iteration will be shown at DraftWork at Danspace Project in May 2017. 

The money raised from this event will fund rehearsal space rental at Center for Performance Research and hourly pay for the performers who will be working with me to create this new work.
