Here are some other ways art shows up in my life! From trying new things to collaborating to working on my own projects, I'm always finding ways to express myself.
My introduction video to my Zoom Interview Project -- first official video coming soon!

In April 2021, I took part in a challenge called Escapril (@letsescapril on Instagram), where there was a daily poetry prompt. This day's prompt was clock.
why do i do this to myself?
i pride myself on not isolating
even when i can’t put in the effort
to do something that i KNOW
will make me feel better.
is it because i know it’s different
that i can’t hug anyone
or jump around in a paramount studio
or could it be
i’ve been so worried about
nothing being the same
that i ceased to grow with it
something as simple as hopping on
a zoom call
of friendly faces,
artistically inspiring, fulfilling, and motivating
allowing myself to breathe in other’s work
and lives and beings
as the clock runs out,
i wish i had reached out more
been less selfish
and did more for my fellow artists
i miss the days i overworked myself
(maybe i romanticize it too much)
i miss the artistic check-ins and alignments of our journeys
(sara, shut up it’s not about you all the time)
KEEP SHARING STORIES
i cannot wait to hear about and witness
more mercutio art and voices <3

An adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's Love is Blind and Deaf (read here) devised for the BFA Acting studio's advanced physical theatre devising course. Created purposefully for zoom, this piece seeks to leverage the unique constraints and "rules" of zoom in order to tell a wholly embodied story. We especially sought to play with the 'magic' available to us on zoom. How do we convey touch? How do we play with angles? How is the audience's limited perception of the piece a strength rather than a weakness? This was the culmination of a semester of struggling against the medium of zoom, and what came of it was a surrender of sorts.
