Following Flow- how does one thing lead to another? How do we interrupt it? What are our habits and how do we embrace or change them? Through a range of tasks, scores, and various movement forms, Sonsheree will find ways to challenge, build and create new pathways of moving both as a solo body and as an ensemble.

Sonsheree is a dancer, teacher, choreographer and costume designer. Her art is informed by a history of durational practice with dance, yoga and running. She creates dances based on everyday life observed from animals, art history and landscapes. From 2005-2015, she was a performing, teaching artist and associate artistic director with AXIS Dance Company. Currently, she is creating her own work as a performance artist and can be seen performing for various companies in the Bay Area. She is thrilled to return to AXIS as a teacher and assistant to Artistic Director, Marc Brew.
