ALL I KNOW: work-in-progress

Queering Dance Festival presents Frolic Online 
September 19, 2020

I presented the video from last year's first Queering Dance Festival.  This piece explores the impact of doors (closed, locked and otherwise) in our lives.  The title reflects that all I knew in 1974 was that I loved her.  Because of that repressive time, it became a radical act to pursue this love by coming out as a lesbian.

Intimate Sharing in Movement and Spoken Word

 

Three dance stories speak of a lost love reappearing in a new form,

a man with a secret that everyone knows but pretends not to, 

and the understanding that some things never leave.

They Never Really Leave

May 2016

Do those we love never leave us?  Forty-year-old cassette tapes unexpectedly surface. The recorded voices are mine and a long lost college love's.  The phrase "long lost" is not only figurative but literal; that lover vanished in 1983.  She was never seen or heard from again. Until now.

presenting the world premiere of They Never Really Leave and a couple of 2014 Fringe Festival favorites, including Consistent Paradox!

standingOUTstanding is my eighth World Premiere in four years.  It features a blend of experimental postmodern dance and improvisation focusing on leading edge themes guaranteed to provoke, stimulate, entertain and captivate the audience’s attention.   The performance explores what happens when previously non-convergent parallel lives collide and merge into one. There is also an examination of a life filled with consistent paradox.

My video was selected for historic preservation by the Fringe Performance Archive and is now conserved in the National Library of Scotland.
