Fragile: Handle with Care premiered in the 2019 Spring Dance Concert and was created  in deep partnership with current BFA dance students and alumni along with faculty and staff from the Technical Design and Technologies program. It investigates qualitative phenomenological research in gender oppression. Personal accounts were collected from the dancers, analyzed, then  synthesized into movement vocabulary which is performed in a 17 – foot tall box designed by Charles Johnson. The creative scholarship integrates my pedagogical research of Students as Partners in dance education and my practice-based, studio research.
