Multi vocal layer and harmony specialist Dancer Performance Artist Lover of gritty textures, nuances and timbres
I’ve performed and created works within the classical, jazz, trip hop, downtempo and experimental realms, as well as worked alongside several remarkable Chicago MCs. All Scarlet Monk performances are carefully curated and crafted (considering the space, other acts and the overall vibe) and no two shows are ever the same.
I love to collaborate, and I believe in respecting each others’ time and vision. I was a member of the Laboratory Dancers company in Chicago for five years.
And here are a few more of my recent favorite collaborations:
