In 2013 I formed The Moving Company, a collective of artists who focus on researching movement as an expression of empathy. What started as a hands-on research group in a residency in Abron's Art Center evolved to an active international performance ensemble which I directed. In winter 2018 the group returned to its original existence as a movement research collective, and Rebecca Pristoop took my place as the leader of the group. Collaboration, play and experimentation are at the heart of The Moving Company, and we've been lucky to work closely with many makers, movers, and art organizations over the years.
In a concrete effort to build community and create access to contemporary art, every year we did a social project with at-risk youth from our neighborhood in Brooklyn. At the end of these workshops, students performed at the Brooklyn Museum “Teen Night,” followed by the publication of a zine featuring stories by published writers based on interviews with the students.
