LBTP Alumna, Marissa Wong

The Training Program created a sanctuary where vulnerability was encouraged; this environment allowed for growth through trust and familiarity. Post-graduation, you continue to explore perspectives and realize continual change is inescapable; however, the integrity gained during those few years remains beyond the studio.

Title: Veils
Choreography: Marissa Wong
Collaborators: Khala Brannigan, Claire Fisher, Courtney Mazeika
Sound: Jamie Bradbury

We explored themes of juxtaposition: self & identity, connect & disconnect, internal & external; the lenses that influence our perspectives. Proposition of whether it is possible to achieve true objectivity.

LBTP Alumna, Amelia Eisen 

My experience in the Training Program taught me how to advance my being and direct myself down the path I am meant to take. It also brought me close to many like minds that will be part of my life and art for a very long time. I use what I learned at lines on the daily.

Within our Skin is a work in progress that will premier in full July 20th and 21st at SAFEhouse Arts. The intention of this piece is to reveal the most honest self through memory.
