I'm presenting solo at once both prologue and epilogue at Anne & Mark's Art Party at the San Jose Fairgrounds. So excited to be returning!
This is not an event to be missed!
Anne & Mark’s Art Party: An Occasional and Irrational San Jose Arts Fest
Some say it’s an “Art Exhibition” others say it’s a “Happening”. It’s been described as, “Mad Max meets Moulin Rouge”, “Burning Man meets Venice Biennale.” Some say, it’s better than… anything they’ve ever experienced…and we won’t argue with that.
This year's party takes inspiration from Alice in Wonderland. Fall down the rabbit hole with us.
for change dance collective presented a new work at West Wave Dance Festival's 25 Anniversary.

Two nights, two different locations: February 2 @ Mission de Santa Clara de Asis; February 4 @ Stanford Memorial Church
A performance piece dramatizing the war poetry of the Jewish Bible. Modern dance, choral music, percussion, and spoken word bring witness to the horrors of war through the eyes of its victims.
I worked with long-time friend and collaborator Claire Calalo (Artistic Director - for change dance collective) to realize the movement for a new multidisciplinary experience grounded in a new interpretation of Lamentations from the Jewish Bible. Conceived by David Pleins, Ph.D., the work brings together the Santa Clara University and Staford University communities in a unique project that is part of SCU's Center for the Arts and Humanities inaugural Salon series (in)humanity.
Both performances were free.
Venue on Tuesday, February 2:
Mission de Santa Clara de Asis (on the Santa Clara University campus)
500 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 95050
Venue on Thursday, February 4:
