Little Eggs: We are all informed with different embodied experiences and stored in our physical memory are hundreds of untold stories. Our notions of artistic expression often seem to inadvertently value language and speech over physical movement, and it is easy to take the body for granted. This project and movement piece aims to be a non-linear exploration of varying physical capabilities in expression.
 

When Good Men Do Nothing: When Good Men Do Nothing (performance), The Cellar Theatre - What does evil sound like? Bombs? Bigotry? Blasphemy? When Good Men Do Nothing is a collection of six almost-monologues exploring the theme of evil and the consequences of not speaking up when something is wrong.
