Performances, Public Dialog, Techno-Dramaturgy, Mentoring, Workshops
Interdisciplinary Collaboration – Performance + Technology – Creative Community
As an artist I present works at all scales from dynamic dialogs and studio works to large scale interactive media and performance installations, and Mixed Reality public practice. I am currently touring several works as part of Livable Futures including a performance lecture On Livability, two transmedia performance rituals, OASIS and Climate Gathering as well as the Climate Banshee 6-channel video installation, and UPWELLING a short film and community workshop memorializing 2020, and lectures on workshops surrounding the Synchronous Objects project and art book. I teach seminar and studio workshops on performance + technology, artistic research, and interdisciplinary practice.
As a mentor and creative facilitator, I help individuals and groups manifest radical creative projects, break through blocks to innovation and liberation, and boost interdisciplinary collaboration for positive change. With 20 years experience working with diverse groups in the U.S. and Europe, I love the process of helping people break through the barriers to change and build thriving lives and communities. Queer feminist, intercultural facilitation methods are the foundation of my work as well as training in anti-racist and inclusive pedagogy, and solution focused dialog. I am a trained doula for Birthing from Within and their justice and liberation oriented methods for mentoring deeply influence my work.
Intermedia / techno-dramaturgy and curation have emerged organically in my practice since I co-founded the Motion Lab at the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) in 2005. With the incredible collaborating research specialists at ACCAD, I have fostered innovative creative projects by 100s of students and professional artists at the intersection of performance, technology, and social justice. In 2015 I established an intermedia residency program for BIPOC artists in collaboration with the Wexner Center for the Arts and am the co-founder of the Motion Network for touring intermedia practices and productions. I find movement based practices to be a radical space for engaging critically and creatively with our technological lifeworlds.
I am happy to have an exploratory session to hear about your goals and see I how can be of service.

Appointments can be in-person in the U.S. or via Zoom. I can provide quotes if applying for grants and offer a sliding scale for fees including reparative justice pro-bono work. Mentoring and facilitating are relational and as much about human chemistry as anything else. I look forward to getting to know you.
