Creating "STILL," with Shariffa Ali

Take a look at the creation process of STILL - a collaboration with ZEST's Theater-Maker Shariffa Ali.  STILL is a (solo) Contemporary Performance Art piece.  It premiered July 2013 in New York City at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory.  Ali and I drew from our own narratives and were glad to find parallels as well as vast differences in our lived experiences.  The interdisciplinary nature of this project made for a soul-enriching development process.  Please enjoy the videos below:
