NEW SHOES 18, Highways Performance Space (July 2018)

Rootless Cosmopolitans is a quartet inspired by the theory of mind therefore creating an awareness of complex relations between self and others. With an introspective yet acutely conscious atmosphere, the dancers find a joint reality through intention, choice in reciprocal interaction, and the constant consistency of emotional fluctuations. The dancers relay relatability in their diversity.

Review by LA Dance Chronicle


For the good instruction of the village

Laptop Ensemble, Gerald Daniel Recital Hall (May 2018)

Artist Exchange, California State University, Long Beach's Central Quad (April 2018) 

As depicted by playwright, Arthur Miller, in The Crucible, mass hysteria and religious intolerance are elements that shape a space for self-doubt and a loss of self. For the good instruction of the village narrates the individual’s indulgence of too many projected and dogmatic voices. The struggle against sacrificing independent convictions for those of another is revealed.​

Music: "cell" - Cameron Johnston

Performer: Alexandra Rix

a dissertation upon poetry;

Film Project (December 2017)

​This project was created as a direct response to a chapter about the duty of artists in Samuel Johnson's The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia. Because the specific chapter discusses the fact that "nothing can be useless," a dissertation upon poetry: explores the most ordinary and commonplace through observation, stillness, and repetition. 


Text: Excerpts from The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia by Samuel Johnson.

Vocals: Katelyn Sanchez

Performer: Alexandra Rix
