"Women choreographers have always been innovators of dance, and WOMEN / CREATE! A Festival of Dance celebrates their creativity and vision with its 9th annual New York City season. This year’s Festival will span the gamut of dance techniques, from contemporary to club and street styles, and will feature four dance films and two live world premieres performed at New York Live Arts.
Karole Armitage, Sidra Bell, Jacqulyn Buglisi, Tatiana Desardouin, Meagan King, and Jennifer Muller will join together for a distinguished night of programming that celebrates women creators and their compelling voices in the dance world. The performance will be followed by a talkback moderated by Danni Gee, highlighting the unique experiences of our 2021 choreographers and the different challenges they have faced as women, with perspectives from the 80s through today. The event is FREE, with a suggested donation of $10. For more information, visit womencreatedance.org."

Das Suizide Projekt
Das Suizide Projekt aims at filling the gap between mental health and suicidal thoughts with dance and movement. This short film 401 Blood on Pointe is one part of my story as a survivor of suicide and raises awareness of mental health. This project highlights Australian Indigenous People and combines artists from both Germany and The United States. Through the global pandemic of Coronavirus, mental health awareness is more important than ever. This film was made possible by The City of Melbourne Covid-19 Quick Arts Grant.
