In 2012, I embarked on a four-year long transformative journey. Each year for four years, I am transforming myself into a different woman from history. In 2013 the woman is Marilyn Monroe. I am spending the year filling my heart with the stories from her life, transforming my body to look like her and creating an environment for her to live in. After this year of study/transformation/creation I will share a performance with you.
As a child, I loved to play dress-up. I loved the way red lipstick would make me feel daring, a tutu could make me dance, and a pair of overalls might give me the opportunity to be loud and rude. As I got older, I started to feel that I was wearing an extra layer over my skin, and no matter what clothes I put on I was faced with my same fears, habits and behavior. This extra skin felt so solid, so true. Faced with this solidness, I started to question what was under this skin. I started to ask: What am I made of? That question led me here.
