welcome!

I’m a dance artist living on abenaki land in n’dakinna/new hampshire

this site will tell you about my work and the folks who make it possible

my current project, vulture sister song, explores human and more-than-human relationships through story, song, sculpture and dance, thanks to collaborators Kate Elias, Pete Dybdahl, Jacob Elias and Josina Guess. With live storytelling and folk music, a migrating herd of creature-like lanterns, curious movement and a healthy dose of humor, Vulture Sister Song brings together artists and community members to celebrate the possibilities of vibrant interdependence.

vulture sister song premiered november, 2022 in the grange theatre at artistree community arts center.  many thanks to our wonderful community who came out to support the first performances. upcoming shows include april 7th, 2023 at ava gallery in lebanon, nh and april 8th, 2023 at a.p.e. gallery in northampton, ma.

vulture sister song is supported in part by grants from the new hampshire state council on the arts & the national endowment for the arts, as well as a community impact grant from mascoma bank and funding from the jack & dorothy byrne foundation.  the vulture watching workshop was funded in part by new england foundation for the arts’ new england dance fund, with generous support from the aliad fund at the boston foundation.
