Here is a sample of the talks I have given on my work in the Jerome Robbins archives at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts as well as my reflections on creativity, writing, pedagogy, and educational technology.
"Dancing and Living Somatically"
In this interview, I share with listeners how bodily awareness practices can become an important guide in life. I talk about the impact of somatics on my dancing, writing, creative research, and worldview. This interview, conducted by Ahni Bonner, was a part of a five-day summit on "Somatic Expeditions" in October 2021.
"Dance for Two: Choreographer Jerome Robbins' Unpublished Letters"
I gave this talk as an inaugural fellow at the Institute for Ideas & Imagination in Paris on November 7, 2018. I talked about the affectionate correspondence between Robbins and the dancer Tanaquil Le Clercq.
