Work with slowdanger

I have been dancing with Anna Thompson and Taylor Knight of dance/music duo slowdanger since we met at through a class at the Space Upstairs in the summer of 2014. I have taken class from them, appeared in several of their music videos, and been a cast member in their performances “memory 5,” “VLX” and “empathy machine.”

VLX

A work presented by slowdanger in collaboration with dancers Ru Emmons, Roberta Guido, and Simon Phillips, and lighting artist Neil Henke. Together the performers navigate through a dystopian world of overdeveloped technology and underdeveloped human connection. Performed at 937 Gallery in October 2018.
