It's been a while since I've been working in New York. This time, I am excited to work with Richard Move for the first time.

 

The first ever performance commissioned by the Trust for Governors Island features six site-specific dance performances immersed in the Island’s stunning landscapes on October 9 & 16, 2021. From the ancient trees of Nolan Park to the secluded lawns of Hammock Grove and the dramatic topography of the Hills, visitors will be led on a journey across the Island’s iconic public space.

The Cast: Robyn Cascio, Megumi Eda, Lisa Giobbi w/ Yoni Kallai, Celeste Hastings, PeiJu Chien-Pott, Natasha Diamond-Walker, & Gabrielle Willis, w/ costumes by Karen Young & event map by Connie Fleming.

I got to dance with Yoshiko Chuma and Wendy Perron on Sunday October 3
at @kismithgallery with fantastic Steve Swell’s trombone. 
Yoshiko is an artist on her journey, creating works that are neither dance, theatre, film, nor any other predetermined category. I sure have been greatly influenced.
Wendy is the leading dance expert of our time, and one of the most connected in the dance world in NYC.

Returning to Mary Ellen Mark foundation studio in Soho, NYC.

I returned to @maryellenmarkfoundation studio in Soho for the first time in eight years.

Mary Ellen Mark died 2 years after this shoot. She was a true New York artist and a true hippie who traveled around the world with her pigtails and one of my most respected dynamic photographers of this generation. She was very kind and friendly.

Her core teams, Meredith and Julia, and Mary Ellen’s husband, Martin warmly welcomed me and showed me original b-roll polaroid photos that I haven't seen since shooting.
