DITCH shines a light on Cherdonna’s varied expressions of femininity and complex personality, contrasting her charisma and constant need to please with the total fear and existential dread that ceaselessly plagues her.

We performed this show 80 times, once a day from Jan 28-April 28 at the Frye Museum. It was exciting to be a part of something so eccentric and wacky, but also something that put a lot of consistency and regularity in my life for those three months. We got into a super tight routine where running the piece became second nature.
