Residency Statement:
In this life. In this particular black body, my artistic practice is inextricably tied to my spiritual practice. I am actively exploring elements of myth, folklore, history, and narratives that use the imagination as the entry point to themes of recovery, resistance, and transformation through the mediums of live and immersive performance as well as experimental film and video.  My practice is grounded in the belief that the crafting of performance, ritual, immersive experiences and transgressive pedagogy can be used as a technology to facilitate new ways of existing within and beyond oppressive paradigms.

This residency will be a generative process for the artists involved.  Artists will be guided through creative prompts and approaches that incorporate everything from personal narrative, history, archival work, and speculative fiction in order to create a performance/narrative text that can exist in either a live or digital format.


Application Requirements:
While the focus of the residence will be on the creation of a dramatic performance text.  Applicants are welcome to submit a 15-20 page writing sample that incorporates any literary medium (poetry, fiction, non-fiction prose, essay, one-act, or full-length play samples.)
