Curating

for me, curating has become inextricable with creating sanctuary, a widening circle of trust in which all are welcome to arrive as they are, push edges, experiment, return to themselves. my work now revolves around that ideal- holding the precious space that the heart and blood need to remember those things the mind often forgets.

PROVENANCE” my first original alchemical theatre work – 12/18/18

“they say the longing becomes holy eventually 
if it doesn’t kill you first”

PROVENANCE is the intersection between the journey to love; the journey to self, which is also to god; and the journey to make peace with the darkness. 

part ritual, part poetry, part music, part movement- it is an exploration of the viscerality of want. how it drives us, transforms us. ‘the wanting creature.’ its connections to love, sex, spirit, and mental illness. and how, if we push far enough- this grief-filled longing becomes ecstatic, transcendent, holy- a means for return to true self, a return to god.
