"When I move in space, the shape of space changes. Even with a super-small flick of the finger, the space around that shifts.”

I am extremely excited and honored to present my work "Please Cry" in collaboration with composer & sound artist Reiko Yamada at Dock 11 on October 27th to 29th.
This work premiered as a work in progress at the Soundance Festival early last month, and was well received. So it was decided at the last minute that it would be performed again in co-production with DOCK ART funded by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
I am so happy to announce that Under Spanish Skies
(FKA Before El Finâ) directed by Nathan Buck won the Independent Spirit Award at the Boston International Film Festival 2022 and also Montreal Independent Film Festival's BEST INDEPENDENT FEATURE 2022 award!
I was a co-producer and responsible for production design for this project.

A collaboration project between butoh dancer Yuko Kaseki and ballet dancer Megumi Eda.
What would emerge if the repressed pain (念) felt by countless women over the ages was put into form through dance?
Taking a starting point from the ballet classic ”Giselle” and the Japanese ghost story/butoh "Oiwa San", a different vocabulary, figure, and shape.

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.
