When one paints an ideal, one does not need to limit one’s imagination - Ellen Key
As someone who loves to create beautiful imagery, tell impactful stories, and capture the unique and the everyday, I have found myself behind the camera and creating content for the stage for over a decade. By observing, collaborating, and directing, we make imagery and stories come to life that were once just a seedling of an idea, deep in the hollows of the imagination.
With a long history as a professional dancer and performer, working in NYC and all over the world, I have found myself in the creative seat collaborating with some of the top in the industry from the stage to film and beyond.
Photographer Dani struggles professionally and personally as the lines between reality and imagination blur. On the eve of a cornerstone birthday, her well-meaning friends and family bombard her with a series of dating app gift cards, leaving Dani in a state of utter shock and despair. Reluctantly, she sets out on a journey ignited by the events of the infamous dinner party and tries to pull the pieces together as she discovers the tools to develop her unactualized life.
With elements of imagination, music, and movement – this piece takes us on Dani’s journey of self- discovery in a non-linear, playful way.
