As a dancer I have had the opportunity to perform and travel with a variety companies and institutions ranging from universities, a cruise line, and several dance companies. Below are a few select videos and images from my performances.
This collaborative, interdisciplinary work was performed as a part of the 2018 ArtWalk First Friday’s Event hosted by the City of Eugene, Oregon. Original concept and performance was by Shannon Mockli and Farhad Braham. Other dancers were invited to participate in this experience in order to allow for different perspectives and voices. Topics of cross-cultural interaction, proximity, touch, and barriers between bodies were explored. Click for Eugene Weekly Review by E. Barkai
This piece was choreographed by UO faculty member, Rita Honka. The piece serves as an homage to her brother, and I had the privilege of portraying him in this work. It was also included in the UO Repertory Dance Company repertory and performances. Click for Register Guard Review
This solo exploration was inspired by the concepts of tactility, vulnerability, and being exposed. This project was completed as part of a graduate seminar class.
This trio was born out of my attraction to the sounds of The Temptations, and was fueled and further influenced by personal familiar and familial relationships. I was both the choreographer and dancer of this work.
