I am thrilled to return to live performance with TrainorDance this May as part of NYBG’s pop-up performances during their exhibition, KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature . Exclusively at NYBG, Kusama reveals here lifelong fascination with the natural world. See the colors, patterns, and life cycles of plants and flowers in a new way through the artist’s latest monumental sculptures and spectacular installations across NYBG’s 250 acres.

"In 2018, Heartbeat collaborated with 100 incarcerated singers in six prison choirs to create a contemporary American Fidelio told through the lens of Black Lives Matter. In 2020 — the year of George Floyd’s murder, a pandemic which ravages our prison population, and the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth — we curated a song cycle, brought to life in vivid music videos, mingling excerpts from Fidelio with Negro Spirituals and songs by Black composers and lyricists, which together manifest a dream of justice, equity... and breathing free."
I made my touring debut in the First National Tour of SUMMER: The Donna Summer Musical as Norman Brokaw and a member of the female ensemble.
