Thoughts from Emily Harvey Residency, Venice

Archive List

Archive of my work

I have three weeks to go before my residency ends in Venice through the Emily Harvey Foundation. My project is to look at digitized videos of my work going back to the 80’s. You can see that I am only on file 5 with 11 files to go and each file has individual works and full length shows. Although I feel like I need to see all the videos before I leave, I may not make it.  What has happened is my mind being filled with memories. I have connected with people involved in the works by sending them edited footage. I am also being my own critic. Sometimes the work urges me to want to recreate them or better yet rework them… but some of the work is damn embarrassing. I shared so many intimate stories. Read more

Thank you for an amazing Performance Mix Festival!

Without you – artists, curators, audience members, NDA Board of Directors, Advisory Board, Artist Advisory Committee, production team, interns, volunteers, staff at Abrons Arts Center, funders, individual contributors and in-kind donors – such a successful festival would not have been possible.

It was a great six days of eclectic performance and other events, and the press agrees! Read Culturebot’s response to Three Genres of Improvisation and see all of our press to date here. Read more
