1. In what way/s are you involved with THE NAKED I: RECOGNIZE/D?
This year, I am involved in THE NAKED I: RECOGNIZE/D as a director/choreographer of a movement-based piece called “Miskeena”. I cast two movement artists (Lea Reed and Zealot Hamm), and I will also perform the song/lyrics live as a part of the ensemble. In addition, I am a featured performer in another piece in the show that is written and directed by Marcel Michelle called “Shopping for Carrots”.

2. Why is it important to tell the stories in THE NAKED I? More often than not, the narratives of LGBTQIA+ communities are explicitly omitted and excluded from theatrical productions. If our stories are told, they are often encapsulated in a manner that is reductive and tokenizing. The stories featured in this show, however, highlight nuanced readings of identity and social placement, providing a wide array of complexity and emotional range. THE NAKED I is a radical space for exploration, where LGBTQIA+ identities are highlighted to their fullest breaths.

3. Finish this sentence: I feel the most naked when… I’m performing.
