What do you do outside of Misnomer?
I am taking a year off from making new work with Misnomer in order to focus on building my teaching practice. I am enjoying creating a new class format based on the martial art Bagua (a cross between Tai Chi and Shaolin) that functions like an Eastern Calisthenics class.
I am excited about it because it combines the best of aspects of modern dance and of yoga– the Chi Gung breathing and zen like quality of a yoga class combined with the movement through space, intense physicality and dynamic range of a modern dance class. I am also teaching Gyrotonic at a wonderful studio in the West Village called ‘Village Gyrotonic’ and continuing to perform with the caburlesque troupe Lady Rizo & The Assettes.
