Commissioned by The Creative Center: Arts for People with Cancer, Crossings was a five-month performance project with The Creative Center for Women With Cancer in partnership with professional artists from the fields of choreography, set design, music and media arts. Crossings sought to break down barriers that exist between art production, healing processes, and performance. Who performs, why, and for whom are questions that informed this work. While the experience of cancer linked the participants, it was not the specific preconceived theme of the piece. The result was the birth of an expressive community that has continued to flourish beyond the dates of the initial sold-out performances in June, 2001 at Judson Street Memorial Church.
