Show/Share is a sharing and feedback series for works-in-progress at Gibney 890 Broadway. The program provides dance artists an opportunity to show ten minutes of unfinished work in an informal, welcoming setting. Artists are invited to share their work through a non-curated selection process. The event is free to the public. Three artists show their work at each session; and the feedback is moderated by an artist from the field.

Threshold
Pushing limits
and transcending them
giving up and giving over
coming apart
and putting back together
becoming known
through trying to remember
the path back to oneself…

What would it be like to try to exist in an environment that does not provide for you within its chain? This work looks at current situations on our planet and researches adaptability, integration, and preservation. It considers consequences when one thing cannot exist without the other, or at least as we know it to be.

Her most recent choreographic endeavor has been developing a continuation to that work, vow.
