Intuitive movement as a healing practice has been with me since my youngest days. Early in life I trained in ballet, tap, jazz, and acrobatics, while continually falling in love with the trees, plants, and animals that occupied my backyard. Since then movement and the somatic experience have informed my learning and pushed my curiosity. Besides attending a handful of Playback Theater workshops, my further scope includes ecstatic dance organizer and facilitator, Theater of the Oppressed player, physical movement educator, and avant garde clown. I am influenced strongly by Dolores LaChapple, Carol Burnette, Gabrielle Roth, and Augusto Boal. For me, Playback Theater is a wondrous meeting place of art, activism, and personal growth.
