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.
Slick Babble Dance Project participated in The Salon on May 7th, 2016. Performance at 9pm, followed by a post-showcase dance party!
Tickets $10 at the door, or in advance here.
LevyStudio, 19 Heron St., San Francisco, CA 94103

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!”

On December 13th, 2014, I had the privilege of participating in a dance performance event curated by SALTA Collective, SALTA is Short & Sweet. For this event, over 20 dance/art/performance-makers were challenged to create a piece specifically for the event that was 3 minutes or less.
I presented a 3 minute duet improvisation score with Lauren Bedal, entitled “Me, walking away“. Our improvisation was centered on us interacting with a particularly bossy sound score created by yours truly. Check out the hyperlink above for more information about SALTA and the events they curate!

At the end of October, I premiered a new dance work at The Garage in San Francisco entitled “Because Poems Are Not Pies (or something like that).” The work was created as part of RAW (Resident Artist Workshop). Excerpts are now up on my vimeo channel! Check it out!
I finally got around to uploading video from my senior project! This solo was commissioned by Tammy Carrasco as part of my senior project for The Ohio State University Department of Dance. The project supported my focus in Performance within the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. It was performed in the OSU Dance Winter Concert: RE: flect⎜peat⎜dact⎜start from February 28th-March 1st, 2014 at BalletMet Performance Space.
In the Fall of 2012, I had the opportunity to learn sound design basics from Michael Wall, a prominent musician and composer for dance. You can hear my sound designs (originally created for videos of choreography) on SoundCloud.
