Studio Works is an informal performance series for local artists to share work in any stage of their process. Artists are given studio space and complete control of how and what they share. All proceeds are split evenly between the artists.

Gas stations are portals connecting us to the past, present, and providing peaks into the future. This dance/text piece will highlight individual memory, connection, snacks over a 100 years old, and parting gifts fueled by love. Excited to show this piece in October’s Studio Works.
AJ will be sharing a work in progress, Untitled (434), she embeds snippets of her memories with family to find her way out of the suffocating tether binding her to her childhood home. “There’s diamonds around that house,” Ms. Too Too says. AJ turns her head, stares back at the seafoam green structure and groans “It’s a piece of shit.”
