Secondhand (2019)

Created while in residence at Studio 210 in San Francisco in 2018, this body of research incorporates an archive of prosthetic arms, spanning 21 years of growth. The line between what is real and what is artificial is blurred as the dancer explores the practical and abstract uses of her many arms.

Eva Louise (2018)

Stranger Danger (2019)

With a cast consisting of 6 strangers who responded to the Craigslist ad "Performers Wanted for Dance Piece - No Experience Needed", Stranger Danger seeks to capture the beauty, strength, and vulnerability of this eclectic cast of performers. Bringing together a classically trained singer, herbalist, stunt performer, college student, environmental activist, and media artist, this work challenges audiences to think outside of the box in response to what is dance, who can dance, and why we need it. 

Choreographed by Julie Crothers, in collaboration with Greta Hadley

Performed by Chelsea Boyd Brown, Spencer Combs, Emily Parents, Alyssa Gordon, Chris O'Neill (chrisacrosstheworld), and Lindsey Dantes 

Premiered at the Merde Project, hosted by Kristin Damrow and Yikes Oakland, at Joe Goode Annex in San Francisco, Sept 5-6, 2019

This Could Be A Choking Hazard (2017)

This Could Be A Choking Hazard is a modern dance turducken. A meaningful work about loneliness, hidden inside child's play, wrapped up in something entirely absurd. Inspired by talk therapy, hundreds of tiny rubber animals, and the effort of not taking oneself too seriously.
