  • RUIN


    So honored to be part of “RUIN” a film by LED @ledboise

    We have been working on something truly special the last few weeks and we're ready to share a behind-the-scenes sneak peek with you!
    Ruin, our most recent film project, is based on the unique journeys of six individuals that work at a theater: an electrician, an usher, a stagehand, a janitor, a concession worker, and a wardrobe supervisor.
    Discovering all facets of the @morrisoncenter - from the dressing rooms to the catwalk to the loading dock to the grand foyer - we follow each character's journey to the theater stage to ultimately explore the complex and ever-evolving relationship between performer and creator.
    My role appears in each character's pilgrimage, I can’t wait to see the final vision of it!
    Follow us on this journey at Patreon.com/LEDboise as we create Ruin this fall. For as little as $5 a month, you can watch every step of the creation process and receive access to the film once it's completed.
    Your support makes it possible for us to create during this difficult time and contributes directly to so many incredible artists.

  • Nostalgia to Baghdad: Between Dark & Bright Memories

    Nostalgia to Baghdad: Between Dark & Bright Memories

    So excited about this performance/stop-motion animation project, I worked long hours in the last couple of years on many details and still working to finalize it by November 6th the last day of my residency at Surel's Place. It is my first time calibrating with my composer friend Sugar Vendil; we met last summer at Yaddo Residency in upstate NY. I am also happy that this project is taking place in Boise, ID, the first place me and my family moved to as refugees ten years ago.
    Stay tuned!!!

  • Viewpoints: Migration, Displacement & Mobility

    Viewpoints: Migration, Displacement & Mobility

    Join us for FREE FOOD & WINE to celebrate The New School Student Exhibition Opening of 'Viewpoints: Migration, Displacement and Mobility'. Students from all departments have come together to showcase their work on related themes.

    May 17th
    6:00 - 8:30 pm
    @ The New School Social Justice Hub 5th Floor at 63 5th Ave, New York, NY 10003

    Migration, Mobility & Displacement as concepts are being challenged and redefined as this ever fluid global landscape of migration and movement is happening at a magnitude and in ways the world has never seen before. In the spirit of bridging perspectives, approaches, mediums and expertise across The New School (TNS), we present this multi-disciplinary exhibition of graduate work exploring the theme of migration, mobility and displacement.

    With TNS being rooted in political, social and cultural engagement and inclusivity, as students we recognize that through our different lenses of practice we are all essentially participating in and contributing to the same greater conversation. Through this exhibition we hope to connect any discourse divide between political science, design and technology, anthropology, urban ecology and other disciplines to present a coherent yet diverse reflection on the area of migration, mobility and displacement.

    Our co-sponsors include: The Graduate Program in International Affairs, The Zolberg Center for Migration and Mobility, The Social Justice Committee, The Vera List Center for Art and Politics and Student Health Services.



    "No one has ever doubted that truth and politics are on rather bad terms with each other, and no one, as far as I know, has ever counted truthfulness among the political virtues. Lies have always been regarded as necessary and justifiable tools."
    Hannah Arendt

    In response to the political scene we are facing these days I organized this exhibition which gonna create a dialogue between MFA Artist work and MFA writers. There will be performances through out the evening!

    Artists: Manar Abdelmaboud, Kevin Quiles Bonilla, Gal Cohen, Sareh Imani, Robert Panichpakdee, Alex Salerno, Andrés Martínez, Zacry Spears, Layo Bright, Marija Markovic, Katie Chambers, and Luma Jasim.

    Writers: Ajay Arora, Keri Smith, Wynne Kontos, Hillary Ferguson, Stacie Leone Bornsten.
