Performance / Poetics
I have shown my performance art pieces at venues like the Musuem of Modern Art San Francisco, the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco, and the Tampa International Fringe Festival.
My 35 minute, interactive poetry and movement -scape, the Opposite of Evolution Dance Studio, was comceived as an ekphrastic to Sunaura Taylor's painting, Self-Portrait with Manatee. She kindly let me use her image in the background porjection and in the show postcard. The show premiered at TIFF in 2018, I performed it in 2019 at the Eco Arts Think/Act Tank in Ypsilanti MI, and it was shown again in 2020 at Rollins College in Orlando, FL. After Covid restrictions abate, I hope to bring the experience to your town!
Waveform (Kenning Editions 2011) my book with dear paisana and fellow disabled artist Denise Leto. is a long conversation in poetry. We meditate, deliberate and list on about chronicity and floating in disabled bodyminds, relationships to the sea, and suspended life.
Other poems and prose by me have been anthologized in Beauty Is a Verb: the New Disability Poetry; The Force of What's Possible: Accessibilty and the Avant-Garde; and Poetry and Work: Work in Modern and Contemporary Anglophone Poetry.
