Muffled Corners is a presentation of contemporary dance produced by Slick Babble Dance Project. A family-friendly buffet of short dance pieces, this performance will feature three new dance works by Emmeline Gonzalez-Beban alongside choreography by special guests Amelia Eisen and Kim Ip. These featured works explore Gonzalez-Beban’s choreographic philosophy through different lenses that range from the absurd realities of multiverse theory to the fiery physical expressions of the oppressed body.

Ten Bay Area artistsof various disciplines are offered ten free hours of studio space to play, take risks, explore, and collaborate. Each artist or group shares five minutes of new work at this Saturday evening art extravaganza. Comfy couches, free snacks, cheap cash bar, and an eclectic line-up make for one of the best performance viewing experiences in town. Stay and shake it at the Salon’s raucous post-showcase party!”

Shawl-Anderson Open House

On January 11th, 2015, Ramon Pulido and I were officially announced as resident artists for 2015 at Shawl-Anderson Dance Center at the annual open house celebration! Since Ramon was not able to make it to the event, I prepared a solo to share with Shawl-Anderson’s community members (an idea seed for further exploration!).


Ramon and I are incredibly excited to continue our choreographic experiments with Shawl-Anderson’s support. For more updates about our collaboration, Mudanza Discorde, get on our email list by sending an email to

Because Poems Are Not Pies (or something like that).
