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.
If you’re interested in bringing Vulture sister song performances and workshops to your community space, please reach out to us at Vulturesistersong@gmail.com.
Fee support for this work may be available to nonprofit organizations through the New England States Touring (NEST) program of the New England Foundation for the Arts. Visit www.nefa.org for more information.
