Once again I will be performing as a guest artist with LA Contemporary Dance Company at Grand Park. This will be a site specific performance situated in downtown LA between the Music Center and City Hall. The company’s piece “Prite Oef Stringh” can be seen at dusk as the opening spectacle to the Dance Camera West screening that evening on the lawn. I am pretty ecstatic to be performing with these incredible artists, and especially since it involves everything I absolutely loved creating and learning about in College. Yipee!
