"Other Than Trauma," at new autobiographical solo exploring generational trauma, addiction and shame empowering the body's wish to connect, find support, grow and heal. Performed at the American Indian and Indigenous Collective (AIIC) symposium at UCSB March 2, 2019.

This performance included an audience score at the beginning where people present were asked to meet someone new, and given the option to take off their shoes. They then could choose sharing of a time when they felt unseen or unheard when they were young, or of a connection they had with an animal. They then were led through an experience of touch before the work began.
