Speaking From The Body ‘A dancer of tremendous joy’ **** (Edinburgh, Scotland Fringe Festival Magazine: Fest, 2014) New works and old favorites! These challenging times are calling upon us to dig deep within and bring forth the best in us. With the intimate story telling of queer and not-so queer tales that I share using movement and spoken word, I inspire others to find those places within themselves. I, at 66, queer and plus-sized, have freed myself from limiting standards and serve as an inspiration to others to continue making art for as long as they want. Come be very entertained and inspired!
