Pioneer Winter // Collective HOST

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend my colleague and friend, Pioneer Winter’s, brilliant presentation of HOSTphysical theatre performance. For me to attempt to describe in words would not do justice to such an intelligent work that truly takes you through an experience, a journey of emotions. Here is Pioneer’s description:

“HOST is an all-male physical theatre work that explores power, authority, control, isolation, and desire. Within these paths, the word ‘host’ emerges as both sexualized territory as well as a bodily struggle. ‘Host’ is layered in the queer community, where one word is weighted by both history and its digital presence – host of a dinner party, host of a game show, host to an orgy, host to a virus…
HOST by Pioneer Winter and Jared Phillip Sharon

Performers: Patrick Rodriguez, Dario Gonzalez, Alex Ortiz, Alberto Pena Jr., Pioneer Winter

Sound and composition: ABI-LI-TY”

 

Here are some of the photos captured that night with my dear friend and fellow choreographer/dancer, Ana Bolt, along side HOST creators and performer.

Monroe County Tourism Photoshoot – Behind the Scenes!

This week, I had a wonderful opportunity, thanks to my fantastic model & print agent, to work on a Monroe County Tourism campaign for the Florida Keys & Key West , shot by film & production company McCray Martin.

Here, I got caught photobombing a couple of the other models between takes…oops!IMG_6219

Then, I got photobombed myself by the photographer..lol!02

The director & crew were equally professional & so much fun to work with at the same time. It was also hard to believe the FREEZING temps we experienced here in Florida.               Still, the shoot was a success!

Enjoy the rest of the sneak peak behind the scenes 😉

A day in my life as a FTLStrikers Captain/Choreographer

When I was contacted by Pierre Rivard of Up In Front, I jumped at the chance to work with him as part of a cool, little documentary on what it is like to be a dancer/choreographer for Fort Lauderdale’s only NASL pro soccer team, The Strikers!

Here, you get a sneak peak into the rehearsal, game-day preparation, fan zone, half-time performance, and post-performance photo-ops with our loyal fans.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked for Up In Front and to share the experience with everyone. Enjoy!
