VIDEO: Make Me Well

On a sunny Sunday in September, my friend and collaborator, Jules Bakshi, and her friend and collaborator, filmmaker Ian Rex Arrow Wolfson, gathered a team of dancers (yours truly included) to create "Make Me Well."

Part public service announcement, part satire, part art film, this is the end result.

Looking forward

Lots of new and exciting things on the horizon...interspersed with working at The Arts Initiative at Columbia University and at Together in Dance.  I'm learning a lot!

Keep an eye out for an Et Cetera Evenings series.
