Filmed and edited in Los Angeles, Too Close received its premiere at the Manchester Film Festival in 2002. A single entity floats weightless in womblike darkness. Tension builds, pulling flesh apart, dividing, until two bodies emerge: a man and a woman. What follows is their struggle to coexist.

A young woman’s struggle to avoid crushing tomatoes and setting off alarm clocks strewn throughout the stage. Her garments become stained with red juice at each misstep.

A duet for three dancers, inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s film Persona. One woman occupies the foreground, and the other, the background. Each works with her own unique expressions and timing, reflecting the dual nature of a sole character. Duelle premiered in 2001 at The Flea Theater, New York City.
Filmed in the south of France, Stir (2000) received its world premiere at the Electric Lodge in Los Angeles.

In each room, an aspect of her psyche, a memory, a dream, is revealed.
