April 1st 8pm Te Kuititanga
My dear friend who is also an amazing artist, Pelenakeke Brown, has been selected by the Artists of Color Council at Movement Research to curate a series of dance works this April. She has selected Rodney Bell (Ngati Maniapoto), a leader in integrated dance from Aotearoa/New Zealand to present a work around her theme of body sovereignty. Katrina George is coming all the way from Aotearoa to dance/move/breathe life into this piece and I'm looking forward to working with her.
Pelenakeke has asked me to provide live sound for Rodney's piece and I am so happy to do it!

April 8th - 12th Residency with Megan Byrne at Mount Tremper Arts
I have been looking forward to this residency for months! Megan has invited me to continue our exploration into the divine feminine, mediumship, movement, meditation, and improvised sound. I'm looking forward to going deeper into my improvisation practice and to see what she's been brewing up. Also super excited to work with and learn from Iele and Jennifer!
I heard there would be textile umbilical cords. Cool right?
There will be a works in progress showing at 4pm Saturday April 13th.
Here is the info blurb:
"Tick Mother Hawk
by Megan Byrne in collaboration with
Jennifer Kjos, Grace Osborne and Iele Paloumpis
Tick Mother Hawk is an offering for the Divine Feminine. Using a series of improvisational movement scores to explore and release energetic states, the performers aim to create "balanced bubbling regeneration" within themselves, the room and beyond. "
