Monster: Portrait 1 and 2 (2007)

The first dances in the monster series, this solo and trio lean into the grotesque and the imaginary. Monster weaves together theatrical, monstrous creatures, invented folk dances, and probing questions about Jewish identity, shame, and what it means to be a victim and a victimizer.
