It is with immense gratitude and excitement to share that I am a 2020 Guggenheim Fellowship Award Winner in Choreography! I am honored to be amongst other esteemed, diverse artists who have also received this Fellowship.
Established in 1925, the Guggenheim Foundation offers Fellowships to further the development of scholars and artists. Fellowships are intended for individuals who demonstrate exceptional skill in any field of knowledge and artistic creation.
This award propels me forward at a time where there is nowhere to go, but to #stayhome! I have always felt a clear connection between solitude and creativity. I hope to use this moment to slow down…to listen, and to connect as best as possible to the depths of my artistic voice in an effort to create something anew.
With solitude comes solidarity.
I am so grateful to have the support of Guggenheim, as well as the community of artists and people both near & far who have become my TRIBE.
