Relocated and updated!

Hello! Well fall is upon us and with that is the revamping of MOTH. I am very excited to announce that we have relocated to the beautiful mountains of Boulder, CO! I will be teaching for Frequent Flyers and working again on MOTH, all very exciting!!! With the move though, I have been contemplating a revamping of what MOTH is to me, and how I want the world to see us. I don't think Aerial Dance quite fits who we are, so I am changing the name to MOTH: Poetic Circus. I hope you like it as much as I do! It will take me sometime to change the name on all of my websites and Blogs, but hope you will spread the word. MOTH is still MOTH, just more defined and refined. Looking forward to sharing new work with you all very soon. Blessings from the Mountains!

Works in Progress

I have been very busy this year, continuing touring with Cirque Le Masque with Elsie, and of course teaching the Professional Training Program at the New England Center for Circus Arts.
I have been working on a new lyra solo, and will start working on a new act with Aimee on a new chandelier, something we are both very excited about. I'm not sure what the next step is, but I am searching for grants and once my vision is clear, I will be sending out another appeal letter. I am ready for MOTH to be involved in a full production again. Stay tuned!

What's been happening with MOTH you ask?

Well, it was a busy summer and it continues to be a busy fall. I have been touring with a show called Cirque Le Masque, performing two pieces with Elsie Smith, a duo trapeze and a duo silks piece. It has been a great experience.
I was also recently awarded an Artistic Development Grant from Fractured Atlas, through which I will have the honor to work with Shana Carroll of Les Sept Doigts de la Main in Montreal.
Also, I have finally finished my website and would love to share it with you. Please check it out!

Deena working on her new chains act...coming soon on Halloween!!!

We did it!

Thank you to everyone that helped make Channeling come to life! There are so many people that helped out, whether it was as a performer, a donor, production crew, tech crew, volunteers, etc. Everyone was amazing! I feel so blessed to have such a supportive community, and look forward to the next MOTH creation. Now it is time to decompress, relax and hang out with my daughter Ruby. Lot of love to everyone. I'll be posting pics and videos from the show very soon.
