Dear New York (2020)

Dear New York is a collection of love notes to New York City to hold close to heart during this global pandemic and polarizing political climate. Once the cultural hub for artists and international crossroads, NYC sometimes feels like an empty playground. How do the Artists who stayed behind continue to create in a society that deems them non-essential?

"An Artist's duty is to reflect the times." -Nina Simone

Dear New York is a series of six dance films created during our one-week residency made possible through Long Island School of Ballet, Queensboro Dance Festival, and our donors via The Field.

23:00 (2017)

"23:00" was choreographed in 2017 after a tumultuous 2016 election. The group choreography represents frustration, anger, group thought, organization, and, at one point, literally trying to pick sides. The soloist represents the fragility of freedom and American democracy. She is shrouded and entangled in a constantly divided society. If she is not free, the ideals of this society will remain in danger.
