We finished presenting “What we see Why we see” on January 8th at Dance Place, Washington, DC. This collaboration was one of the most adventurous and meaningful one for me in many ways. My collaborator, Tzveta Kassabova, and I come from a very different background. I’m from dance, theatre, literature and linguistics. She is from dance, gymnastics, and astrology.

Just finished dancing “0.01 Decibel” at Improv Menu in DC. I asked my cellist/vocalist friend Audrey Chen to join me since she was back from Berlin for a short time.

I caught the last glimpse of her and she disappeared from my sight.
