About the Show

Common Threads was a series of six different pieces devised by the ensemble of Looking for Lilith. Using prompts about the pandemic, the ensemble members participated in a series of “story circles” where they listened to stories and then devised a “to minute digital response.” After the digital portion was created, they asked directors to create movement pieces to go along with it. I was asked to work on Could’ve, a stop motion animation film that focused on grief and loss during the pandemic. I had never worked on a project like this before. I watched the film over and over again, listening to the stories, but no ideas came to mind. But fortunately I didn’t have to do it alone. Working collaboratively with my actors, Adama and Clare, we were able to piece together the movements that fit with the film. We created a series of tableaus that helped enhance certain moments in the film. We created a truly beautiful piece and I’m so grateful for being a part of it.



Stronger Together (Looking for Lilith)

“At its strongest, Could’ve combines movement work, meaningful phrases in repetition, and interpretation of grief, death, and traditions”
