"Receiving the Artist Innovation grant is proving to be one of the most important moments in my career. It has allowed me for the first time to collaborate with hip-hop choreographer Rennie Harris, someone whose work I've admired for over a decade since first establishing my own practice. Creating a new piece with Rennie has also itself opened new doors for me by helping to legitimize my art in the public eye and broadening my performance work into a new aesthetic realm. Thank you, CCI, for giving artists the leg up they need at just the right moment."
