Last month marked my third year joining inspiring Philly circus company Tangle in their spring show; this time, I performed a solo static trapeze piece in RetroAct.

This past fall and winter, I cocreated a full-length ensemble circus-theater show with 4 friends, Tinder & Ash, during 4 months in Montreal through a residency from the circus-mecca TOHU.
