Leaves of Grass

We worked with movement director Sarah Gorman of Frantic Assembly in 2013 to create a text and movement piece examining how we become alike, what that means about the insularity of the self, and how this phenomenon of similarity affects our relationships. This was then expanded on in the 2017 iteration.

The performance involved six performers exploring Lily Kwong’s indoor garden at the 14th Factory, an interactive, multi-disciplinary art space in Lincoln Heights during summer 2017.

In 2013, Leaves of Grass was initially presented in the Studio Series at REDCAT in Los Angeles.
