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.
