THIRD RUN! Theory/ Co-Creator, In Theory: Notes on Love, Home, Diaspora, and Failing Adulthood

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, IN THEORY is a dance and spoken word fusion that explores converting the pain of our past into the resistance of our future.

Growing up is supposed to mean forgetting the past. Adulthood is supposed to be a rite of passage. Learning the language for your trauma is supposed to mean you can move on from it.

But what happens when the whole world seems to thrive on the structural violence that destroyed your family? What does it mean to acknowledge that maybe your entire lineage is a history of trauma? And what happens when the people you have been, refuse to be left behind?

A Dying Breed follows a group of five people thrust together in the pursuit of survival all set against the backdrop of a dystopian United States that systemically enforces the constraints of archaic gender roles. Learn more about the show and the Magic Time Series at http://www.judson.org/magictime.

Choreographer, Embodi(ED)

Embodi(ED) is a documentary theatre and dance piece addressing the issue of eating disorders and the 55 billion-dollar-a-year diet industry. Based on interviews with people of all ages and all genders conducted by Girl Be Heard ensemble members, Embodi(ED) demands media accountability in how images of “beauty” are used against women, fueling a culture of body and food obsession that feeds into eating disorders and a dangerous economic investment in maintaining a culture of hatred for women’s bodies.

LADY QUEEN, Untameable (New York Acting Debut)

Co-Produced by Highly Impractical Theatre and The Unsoft War, Untameable pits diamond heist against museum intrigue and tells the tale of two women, one trying to steal a jewel and the other trying to keep it safe. The work is an immersive romp between a criminal den and a modern museum; the audience navigates their own experience and much like the characters themselves, must decide between love and diamonds, honesty or victory.  Stealing this diamond is Nel's (Vicki Rodriguez) main magnum opus. Her other is falling in love. Which slightly complicates matters when her fiancée Cabel (Annie-Sage Whitehurst) is running the exhibit of the diamond she's aiming to steal. Untameable is a tale of diamond-crossed lovers and of rescuing a stone and getting it back to its origin country. The action is played simultaneously in La Acadé, the theives' hideaway, and The MAFM, the museum showing the diamond, and is punctuated with dance sequences detailing the origin love story of the Boy Prince (Nikita Chaudhry) who originally owned the diamond and the Lady Queen (Ian Fields Stewart) who stole it from him many eons ago. Untameable is an investigation into what we will do to achieve our magnum opus and what gets lost in the winning. Get your tickets at http://untameable.bpt.me .
