Decommissioning Doublecloth Series: Performed at the Headlands Center for the Arts on Miwok land. A weaver and rope and fabric aerialist haunt a former military base with queer, black presence. Collaboration with rope and fabric aerialist Kiebpoli Calnek.

BODYWARP explores weaving as performance and calls for a unique receptivity to tensions in political and emotional spaces. The work investigates looms as frames through which I as the weaver become the warp and am held under tension, as I perform a series of site-specific interventions using my body. Like the accumulation of memory in cloth, in BODYWARP, looms and other tools of the weaver's craft become organs of memory, pulling my body into an intimate choreography involving maker, tool, and the narrative of a place.
