Happy Goyishe New Year to all!
I hope it brings You all You want and need, and hopefully some of those are identical. 2019 finds me enormously grateful for every day i spend with those i love, doing what i love.
Here’s what i’ll be doing to spread the gospel in coming weeks:
New Ongoing Class at Tanzfabrik (Wedding): Finding the Most Open Question, every Tuesday evening, 20:00 to 21:30, starting January 29! Come join me for a research into the choreographic potential of somatic work. More fun than it sounds. Uferstudios, Studio 3! Looking forward to seeing You there!
Sending radical, unconditional, transformative love, from my heart to yours. May this be the year we all empower ourselves and each other.
After 7 weeks of working together, the wonderful participants of this Tanzfabrik Performance Project on Desire will have an informal showing to round things off on Wednesday December 19, at 9:00pm, Uferstudios Studio 3. Come!
Join the class whenever You like, or join for all seven weeks of the performance project
Happy to report that Shapeshifters won an honorable mention in the “Best Short Film” category at Cinekink 2018 in New York this year. Always a joy to be back in The City, my spiritual home.
Happy New Gregorian, Dance Fans!
The big news is that as of shabbos two weeks ago, i’m now OFF SOCIAL MEDIA. I’m officially declaring the social media experiment FAILED and celebrated last week by going to a Tarkovsky film festival that i learned about from a POSTER IN THE SUBWAY. I’m experiencing a certain amount of FOMO (Mom & Dad, click here), but also a great deal of energy and enlightenment.Please don’t hesitate to keep me in the loop about all your goings-on, subscribe me to your mailing list, let me know about anything happening You think i might be interested in. CALL ME!
This is also happening this month and next:
TOMORROW, Wednesday February 6: Substituting for Johanne Castille Bro’s Contemporary Dance Class at Tanzfabrik Berlin at 4:45pm. Feeling spontaneous? Come over! I promise some spirals and some of my usual witty repartee.
Sonata, part two of the Sex & Space Trilogy, will be screening at the festival La Boca Erótica in Madrid on Saturday February 10 at 7pm. It will also screen at the Vienna Porn Film Festival on March 3 at 7:30pm
Odd Jobs Dept.: This coming Sunday, February 11 at 3pm, i will be giving a tour of the exhibition Archaeomusica in Brandenburg an der Havel, about an hour outside of Berlin. Don’t ask how i became an expert on musical instruments from the Stone Age through the early Middle Ages, but if You want to know the difference between a carnyx and a bird-bone flute, You should definitely join this one!
Shapeshifters, part three of Sex & Space, will be screening at the Cinekink Festival in New York City, running from March 14-18. As i will be visiting Mom, who actually lives within walking distance of the Film Anthology Archives, i will be there live and in person!
April Preview: From April 3-12, i will be teaching two weeks of Pleasure (a contemporary technique class) at Tanzquartier in Vienna, with the short workshop Desire (on Intimacy in Process and Performance) interspersed on Saturday April 7. Super happy to be making my debut at this fabulous institution.
That’s it for now – i will most likely send out another missive towards the end of March and then return to my usual rhythm of sending something out every two months.
Sending lots of love out there your way, into the void. See You soon IN REAL LIFE.
This beautiful residency on Embodying Conscious Futures is happening in the Czech Republic next month! Czech it out! If You’re wondering how the work we do fits into the current political landscape (i do) and how art can actually affect societal change, i feel this one has a pretty interesting combination of questions raised:

Dear AMSTERDAM! Just to let You know, a small excerpt from my film Sonata – Part Two of the Sex & Space Trilogy will be spontaneously shown this Saturday at EYE Filmmuseum, as part of a lecture on pornography and art by prime feminist porn filmmaker Jennifer Lyon Bell. I will sadly not be there, as back in Berlin! But please go and tell me about it!

Next week @The Hole: For actually the FIRST TIME EVAH, the whole Sex & Space Trilogy is being screened in one place at the same time (that is, sequentially, of course), my artistic output of the past few years, mashing up choreography & pornography. QUINTET, SONATA, & SHAPESHIFTERS finally united on the big screen. If You’re in Berlin, come on over!
