I'M BLAZE 

I AM AN INTERDISCIPLINARY DANCE PERFORMER AND MAKER. I HAVE MADE WORK FOR AUNTS, BAX (NEEDING IT), CHASHAMA, DANCEHØLØ, HERE ARTS CENTER, GIBNEY (SHOWDOWN), DIXON PLACE, MOVEMENT RESEARCH (OPEN PERFORMANCE), AND VARIOUS DIY EVENTS. I HAVE PERFORMED FOR AND HELPED GENERATE PIECES WITH THE DRUNKARD’S WIFE, RADIOHOLE, URSULA EAGLY, ILAN BACHRACH & ROBERT M. JOHANSON, MINOR THEATER, SOPHIE WEISSKOFF, THE PACK AND BUILT FOR COLLAPSE. 

IN MY WORK I GRAPPLE WITH COMMERCIALIZED QUEER VISIBILITY AND CAMP.

AS A DANCEMAKER I AM INVESTED IN PUSHING AGAINST THE MAINSTREAMING OF QUEERNESS WITHIN THE AMERICAN CAPITALIST HEGEMONY, AND RECLAIMING IT THROUGH LIVE EXPERIENCES THAT EXPRESS THE POTENCY AND LIMITS OF EMBODIMENT. THROUGH DANCE AND PERFORMANCE, I USE BOTH ABSTRACTION AND CULTURAL ICONOGRAPHY AS TOOLS TO TURN MY BODY INTO A VEHICLE OF REFLECTION FOR THIS WONDROUS AND APOCALYPTIC CONTEMPORARY MOMENT.
