FIND YOURSELF HERE, a collaboration between three dancers and three visual artists, is being presented by American Dance Institute (ADI) in April and will have its New York premiere in September.

FIND YOURSELF HERE is made possible in part by a 2014 Jerome Foundation general grant during the foundation’s 50th Anniversary year. FIND YOURSELF HERE is also made possible in part by a 2014 New York Foundation for the Arts BUILD grant, a 2014 LMCC Process Space artist residency (, and by The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the Davis/Dauray Family Fund. Various stages of investigative movement research and showings of three trios that form the informational foundation of FIND YOURSELF HERE were supported by residencies at the Bogliasco Foundation, Djerassi and Baryshnikov Arts Center (with additional support from the Martha Duffy Award), a Yellow House Educational Stipend, and in part by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC). This work also continues to be supported my many individual contributions.
