Frontera Fest was canceled so we threw a party! We couldn't be more glad! What a joy to finally let this piece out in the open air -- so fresh and light and finally the way we dreamed it could be. Thank you thank you to everyone who came to share the time with us!
An Unimportant Failure
SEPTEMBER 25th -- 9pm. SEPTEMBER 26th -- 1:30pm.
Who has the right to be disappointed? How many have the privilege of forgetting?
An Unimportant Failure is a play and a paper cut out. Using dance and object, it tells the story of the keepers of all lost things and how they themselves are also lost.
T E T H E R theatre/dance draws the line between theatre and dance, balancing along that tension as both forms find full range of expression. Collaborative duo Devon J. Adams and Zoey Cane Belyea are inspired by the place where one artist's ignorance meets the other artist's experience.

TETHER is the meeting place to explore new ways of storytelling combining dance and theatre. Tether is the tension that hold me to you, the space between my knowing and your knowing, the cord we balance our questions on. Tether is the way sometimes one follows and sometimes one leads. Tether is a restriction that sets us free.
Excited to announce that two of my projects will be headed to the Houston Fringe Festival this September!
Gale Theatre will be remounting W.K. with a reframed and updated script.
In our new collaboration as TETHER theatre/dance, Devon J. Adams and I will be expanding An Unimportant Failure into a 40 minute piece. An Unimportant Failure is a play and a paper cut out. An imagined myth, the piece will use dance, song, and object to tell the story of the two forgotten sisters of Icarus: the keepers of all lost things. They must discover where people go when we loose them and how it feels to be left behind.
Look for more info about an in process showing of An Unimportant Failure along side The Pink House choreographed by Celina Chapin in late July.
Devon and I are returning to An Unimportant Failure with plans to turn it into a full length piece.
Mercury in retrograde, old projects feel new again.
So thankful to be able to get home to Seattle to participate in Young Guns festival. Totally blown away to receive the Mazen Award. Holy shit team, I love this festival and I can't wait to see all the amazing things 14/48 projects continues to dream up.
The Mazen Award is awarded to veteran participants of 14/48 who embody the spirit of community and risk-taking inherent in our process. The award is named for longtime local actor Glenn Mazen, a supporter of the festival who passed away in 2003.
