“one hundred ways to say no” explores how we question systems, embracing the beauty of individual strengths within the community, how power is enacted on a body, and how performance can be a site for resistance.
Created in quarantine during the pandemic, this performance is about being consumed by the daily barrage of terrifying news images, fluctuating between numbness, fear, pain, shock, and anger, and moving forward to break the cycle and become the “Good News” in the world.

Exploring how we hold onto trauma in our bodies, how we create space for it to live inside of us, mask it or give it reverence. How is our past integrated and how we can shift to celebrate our traumas as a part of the whole? A body is beautiful and keeps the score.

Beautiful things are difficult, naught without effort, I make the room and the room makes me, a dialogue of service, a fight for mattering, the conservation of matter, compose, decomposition, compost, regain composure.
