Choreographing The Wheel for Hysterica was a kinetic adventure! Collaborating with artist/designer Lara Schnitger truly expanded my way of thinking about structure, movement and design.

Friend and collaborator Diana Koenigsberg captured the creativity in a one of a kind photo shoot featuring choreography, design and performance with dancers Reshma Gajjar, Andy Acosta, Hunter Hamilton, Marlon Pelayo, Justine Clark and Tara Brook.

COLLABORATION IS KEY!
