Innominate with Catastrophic Theatre (May 27-June 19, 2022)
Join this raw and poignant multimedia performative storytelling through dance, puppetry, video, music, and vocals. ‘Innominate’ is a devised, experimental, dance-theatre piece by multi-disciplinary artist Afsaneh Aayani. Dually inspired by Pablo Picasso’s painting, Guernica and Iran’s Green Revolution, Innominate combines puppetry, live original music, mixed media, and movement to create a surreal journey through Aayani’s personal experience as an immigrant from war-torn Iran. Caught between a perpetual limbo on her twisted path to American citizenship and unable to return to Iran, she remains a woman without a country.’ Performances take place every weekend, Thursday-Sunday, May 27th to June 19th.
I am so excited to be a dancer for this amazing performance! This is a show, unlike anything that I’ve ever done before. Performing in this show has stretched me in so many ways as a performer and artist. I hope that you can make it. 🙂

Mind the Gap Festival 20.0 (April 26, 2022)
Come out to see “Jezebel: Rise of the Fallen”, choreographed by Loren Holmes. Jezebel: The Rise of the Fallen, will tell the story of how Jezebel was considered a ruthless leader who stopped at nothing to get what she wanted. Her quick rise and fall out of the kingdom is what leads her to become one of the most infamous women in history.
I am beyond grateful to be portraying Jezebel again for this project! It would mean so much to have your support as a portion of ticket sales go to choreographers. You can purchase tickets and learn more about the other pieces being presented here.
BEST OF FRINGE(MAY 15, 2022)
I am so excited for my first solo choreographed and performed piece to be accepted for the Best of Fringe! I submitted my titled dance work Mania last year for Houston Fringe Festival. I am beyond thankful for the opportunity to tell this personal and important story again.
Mania takes you on a journey of what one may experience during a manic episode as well as the mental and physical effects.
