These are some of the artists who's work inspires me; Pina Bausch, Robert Wilson, Meredith Monk, Martha Clark, Ann Carlson, and Simone Forti. I have had the enormous luck to have seen all of these great artists' work, live, on stage and it is an unforgettable, visceral experience. The work and planning that went into getting to be there in person, to a seat in the audience was formidable at times. Working extra jobs, creative travel plans, waiting on lines, and waiting and waiting for the performance to feed my soul. I was never disappointed. Now I am finally making my own work and it is in this performance/theater art venue that I am once again drawn to. I am forever grateful for these artists and performances that opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities.
