Welcome, May 2013

These days, I’m into watching. A happy voyeur sitting in a darkened room where I view bodies working out choreographic ideas that are complex, nuanced, big, bold–even messy. Ideas that are assuredly full-bodied and fully embodied. My artistic guiders give me cues and symbols, visual and verbal, that are imbedded within their structures, which help […]

Welcome

I am writing from a cozy living room in Los Altos, California, visiting with my husband’s family. A fire is burning in the fireplace, the sky is dark with storm clouds, and it is raining again. It feels very-much like a winter day even though the days are slowly get longer and the trees are […]

What’s in a Name: The Legacy of Everybody’s Creative Art Center

The 1970s were a time in America when black people awakened to their African heritage and were taking on new names more fitting their history and characters.
