I aim to create opportunities for audiences to form connections between pain and potential. My goal is to illustrate both trauma and benign experience in all its complexity. As a playwright, composer, classically trained soprano, multi-instrumentalist, performer, and conceptual artist, I follow inquiries that offer me encouraging perspectives on potentially discouraging circumstances. Integrating media such as music of multiple genres, traditional and experimental theater, movement, puppetry, storytelling, and commedia dell’arte, I develop theatrical work portraying imbalances in cultural and environmental sustainability.
