I'm thrilled to have found out that in Spring 2018 I'll be developing my solo Small Boobs as a Co-MISSIONS artist in residence at Links Hall. Thanks Links for everything you do, and I can't wait to continue my work there.
In the meantime, I'm also extremely grateful to have been offered a residency at Volta Performing Arts, a new studio in Logan Square, through which I'll be able to stay in the process of building Small Boobs until the residency at Links begins.

Favorite Song with M Wu, Time & Place Series at Mana Contemporary Chicago First Saturdays, May 6, 1-4pm
Favorite Song is a performance jukebox. Initiated by viewers’ selection of songs from an expansive playlist of 20th & 21st century pop classics, two dancers offer personalized, improvised celebrations of these favorites in a durational commitment to shared musical devotion. Can we channel what that song does for you? What does it feel like when we don’t? Part dance, part lip sync, part drag, part deconstruction, Favorite Song is a love letter to music that seeks to map the outskirts of shared experience.
