"Mi baile en casa" depicts the central place of home in our dance experiences, and how this has held an ever-growing, more familiar space for many children to express themselves throughout the pandemic. This screendance was filmed remotely throughout the early phases of COVID-19 and is reflective of the space that the 11-year-old dance student, Ruby Castillo, resided in during this time. Commissioned by Ballet Hispánico for Noche Unidos, a virtual fundraiser, the film premiered on June 30, 2020

"Descubrimiento: Voice, Place, Identity" premiered at El Barrio's Artspace PS109 on April 13, 2019. Created as a Latinx artist collective, the immersive performance unfolds through film, embodied oral history performances, interactive screen-dance, and soundscapes. These artistic mediums work interdisciplinarily across the Latinx diaspora to challenge the welcoming and disinviting, loving and violent images by which the body becomes known.
