Mimesis, Stage II, sound and video performance

 

I've had the great opportunity to be invited to experiment in Icebox Project Space, and have brought along a friend, the awesome sound designer Eugene Lew to play with ideas within the space. As a result, we'll be performing a live audio/video performance on March 25 at 8pm.

Cross Pollination Residency: January 11-17, 2016


In January, I participated in a weeklong collaborative artist residency as part of Swim Pony Performing Arts’ multi-disciplinary Cross Pollination project. I worked with Classical Indian Dance performer, donia salem and theater director, Adrienne Mackey. The residency resulted a beginning stage of designing a board game that challenges the player’s perception, space and memory of one’s self and in relation to their family.

2015 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar Fellowship

 

I am grateful to receive a Philadelphia Fellowship funded by the Wyncote Foundation to attend the 2015 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar in June at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY.  The weeklong seminar brings together filmmakers, artists, curators, and scholars to celebrate the power of the moving image.  This year’s seminar is entitled, “The Scent of Places,” suggesting the ways cinema makes the subtlest of presence perceptible.

Performing Collectivity: In Conversation with Salem Collo-Julin and Maria Dumlao

AUX Performance Space, Philadelphia
Sunday, June 15, 4pm 

 

Aux Performance Space Curatorial Fellow Jamillah James will moderate a conversation between Philadelphia-based artists Salem Collo-Julin and Maria Dumlao. The artists will discuss their histories of collective participation—Collo-Julin in Temporary Services and Dumlao in Brainstormers—and how their activities, ranging from exhibition-making and self-publishing to performative protests and street-level institutional critique, reimagine what creative production entails, and decenter its generation, interpretation, experience and circulation.
