Awakenings Artist

“I am honoured to be a part of the Awakenings Artist Mentorship. ‘A Revolution of Love’ allows me to dive deep into long-time curiosities about my processes and work in a non-traditional performance environment. I can’t wait to connect with new artists and new spaces in a city that inspires me every day.”
