In the weekly trek into the river, I’ve observed and experienced beauty, uncertainty, and moments of bliss. Being in a river surrounded by the mountainside of Mt. Rubidoux, indigenous plants, and wildlife is intrinsically beautiful; it’s something that needs to be seen to be felt. While engulfed in beauty, I can’t seem to get this lingering feeling off of me every time I visit the river; it’s a feeling of uncertainty, despair, yet in the midst of doubt, I still find hope.Read More
Hi all - I haven't updated here in a while, so here's a quick update on what I've been working on for the past few months.
I launched a new project called hundredancers.Read More
A performance about you, me, us, and all the spaces we inhabit and that surround us. About visibility, obstruction and choice. About possibility, agency, and newness. A shared space where each individual experiences this performance however they please. About (in-stall-ing) yourself.

Hello dear friends, family, and general lurkers!
Today, I am thankful: Thankful for all of the new friendships I've made these past few months, thankful for recent opportunities, and thankful for this new website I have managed to compile through countless revisions.
About a year ago I redesigned my website to fit the web's changing standards, but a year is a long time in web-space. This time around, I scrapped WordPress and decided to use Squarespace. I loved the flexibility of WordPress and the ability to get into the nitty-gritty details of its open-source code, but what took days, weeks, or even months on WordPress took only a few hours to create on Squarespace. I'm essentially starting from scratch; Importing from an older website left strange formatting and structural issues. So, as a result, you may notice that older blog posts are no longer around; Instead, I've decided to incorporate them into my two galleries - dance and portrait. I invite you to take a look around my site and let me know what you think.
I have created a Facebook page in conjunction with my new site. If you have a comment to make, please leave them below. Stay in touch by contacting me, subscribing, or by following me on Instagram and Twitter; I would love to hear from you!
Lastly, I am currently selling fine art canvas prints on my print store. A limited batch of one-time-prints are currently on sale until August 14, 2015. New prints will be added every Tuesday.
Thanks again for all of your continued support!
Choreographer Samantha Blake Goodman brings together nine Los Angeles based artists for the creation of her new evening length work EXCERPTS. Unraveling in two parts as five and Shades in Lavender, this live performance project is built in collaboration with Crystal Sepúlveda, Samantha Mohr, Ted Byrnes, Pari Desai, Nicolette Mishkan, Katelan Breymar, Dayna Richards, Jaman Laws, and Kathryn Nockels.
EXCERPTS is a meditation on the present as it is constant flux, playing with the intimacy of seeing and being watched, of listening and being heard. It is about feeling and constructing heightened conditions in shared spaces as it challenges traditional uses of the black box theater.
Featuring a live horn section, improvisational sound on drum set, and three dancers, the evening’s program is designed to provoke heightened experiences for both performers and audience, through interchangeable scores created for movement, sound, lighting, and costume.Read More
