Em.bod.y show a success!

Thank you to all who supported us in any way, for our Em.bod.y show. You have our affection and gratitude. It was a tremendous success, and we are still reaping the benefits from it. I'll post more about that soon.

Below is a short video of my latest piece, The Battle.

The Battle is based on a Japanese folk tale, "Momotaro" or "Peach Boy". Momotaro is destined to be a blessing, having been born from a peach found by an elderly, childless couple. Indeed, he grows up and, accompanied by an unlikely band of warriors, conquers the oni (demons) who have plagued his village for years.  In my adaptation, the hero is more aptly called "Momotoad" or "Peach Toad".
