"What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies." Aristotle We were once like family. But now? It's hard to hold a stranger's hand. Even if you've known them all your life. You can't go home. KITH is a mapping of our bodies' hum story of chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reason and kinship. Sep 2017 Philly Fringe Festival

VOLCANO, MY LOVE
What is life without memory? Volcano, My Love is the story of a man who lands in paradise navigating survival, a mermaid and a puzzling selective amnesia. It is how we tell ourselves stories about places we don't know, create exotic spaces that hold onto us; then hold them in our hearts. Sep 2012 Philly Fringe Festival
A coming-of-age fable inspired by Manifest Destiny, comfortable furniture, and the migration of birds. With dance, words, and song, a world inhabited by fragments of the unloved, the improbable, and the familiar.
