Facing West Shadow Opera 
https://facingwestshadowtheatre.wordpress.com/
Facing West Shadow Opera is a collective of artists, puppeteers, filmmakers and musicians hybridizing art forms to create magical acts of rebellion as small scale experimental art that is sustainable in the current gold rush climate of the Bay Area. Currently we are performing a live Baroque puppet opera: THE EUPHORIA OF WALT WHITMAN exploring Queer Poet Walt Whitman’s obsession with the traveling operas of the Wild West and Gold Rush era. Part of the program will also include two shorts by FWSO Artistic Director Lydia Greer, Hysteria, a new short video, and an excerpt from her animation, A Self Made House.

Choreographies of Disclosure
Led by artist Jadelynn Stahl, Choreographies of Disclosure is a socially engaged collaboration between self-identified survivors of sexual assault and Bay Area performance artists. The project utilizes multidisciplinary performance to complicate existing social narratives surrounding the aftermath of sexual violence, how the traumatized body is perceived and how survivors’ experiences are interpreted.

VERMONT STUDIO CENTER/April 2016


Excited to be working at Vermont Studio Center this April on protoypes for a new body of work with paper, an experimental illustrated novel, animation experiments and more! My studio is huge and gives me a wonderful sense of possibility. Click to check out my instagram feed if you dare. 

FORT NIGHTS at FORT MASON CENTER for ART & CULTURE


I am excited to have been included in FORT NIGHTS: Neon Robot Iceberg on March 26th, 2016. I exhibited a large scale looping video installation of an accumulation of my animation/material studies as a new peice in the beautiful and gigantic 55,000-square-foot Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason. This event, which is the first in the Fort Nights series, features more than 22 artists and musicians exploring site-specific multi-media art across the 55,000-square-foot Festival Pavilion and Firehouse in a one-night-only spectacle of light and video art installations on March 26 2016.

In Praise of Shadows: Live Shadow Puppetry, Opera, and Found Film Projection
With Facing West Shadow Opera
Thursday, March 3, 2016 
9:00 p.m. | Kanbar Forum
Facing West: A Shadow Theater Opera is a handcrafted, multisensory immersion into a key moment in the evolution of the American West. Modernizing traditional shadow puppet theater, Facing West merges visual techniques that range from projected video, animation, and shadow theater to create a dense and holistic visual landscape. Drawing inspiration from the book Walt Whitman and the Opera, Facing West explores Walt Whitman's obsession with the traveling operas of the wild west and the gold rush era. Pairing its innovative visual elements with operatic voice and cello, the piece is a singular and immersive work that examines local history through a unique creative lens.
