Shedding, Molting, Emerging

In May I was awarded the's summer In Process Residency at The Whole Shebang.

Photographer, artist, creative spirit, mentor, and friend Ellen Rosenberg shared space at our rehearsals. Below are some of her impressions of the process of "Left Behind", through her eyes and lens. From her album "Creative spirit of women"...

"a moment of contemplation"

"all are connected.. a hand reading our to let us know someone is always there.."

"and the wall holds us up or keeps us silent?"

"Bearing another's weight always.."

"bring all into the circle with no judgement"

"no one shall be alone"

"Trust and connection"


  1. These look wonderful grouped like this. Like women poets I admire for the luminosity, the beauty, the spirituality, the community perspective, who for me are the center of poetry, women are the the center of dance, the holders of its loveliness. The world would be an incomparably poorer place without our women artists. In this I include you and your troupe, not excluding the men at all. The older I get, the more I realize how rich my life has been for all the wonderfully strong women who have been part of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Michael. Indeed our world would be a very dull place without the diversity that each voice adds to the chorus! My work has focused on the female experience - not to exclude the male perspecive, but because I have stories to share and songs to sing and because I can only speak for myself. Thank you for letting me know that in being vulnerable in my own voice, I'm allowing for you to view the work through your own lens. I am grateful for your feedback!
