At The Broad Museam in East Lansing Michigan vnesswolfchild performed beside Christiana Laine in a nest of clustered trash crystals birthed in collaboration with Paula Schubatis and Dessi. Joyfully adorned by paid actor, vness led a skipping parade through the cemented landscape with the ever ecstatic Martez Claybren to a gallery where he Dj'd and we jumped rope and laughed alot alot.

Piscean Dreams: An Evening of Inward Swimming: The Imaginatron, vnesswolfchild, and Matthew Daher came together to take the audience on a musical journey into the depths of their inner ocean. Days before the vernal equinox, this was an occasion to melt what was frozen with positivity, wonder and healing energy. The event was held at the Museam of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD).
Local Astrologer Alexander Weyer served as master of ceremonies for the evening, providing story, prose, and insight into the planetary energies of the night and provided guidance for how we all might make the most of the time.
All the performers will incorporated new explorations in sound, light, costume, installation and audience participation that pushed the boundaries of their practice and their own inner journey.

The White Snake
The White Snake is a life long collaboration between Amanda Stone and vnesswolfchild where we embody animals or archetypes in order to listen and transform on an energetic level.
In this version of the white snake we built a space for the scared primal feminine to guide our work with the wild grouse.
This ceremony occured at Parse Gallery in New Orleans.

In the wake of the MeToo movement vness and Paula Schubatis organized the No Show. An art exploration of celebrating the power of No for femme identifying people. The No Show was held at the Schvits where historically women were only allowed as an escorts to men.
The No Show shared the work of 44 Artists. vnesswolfchild presented a self portrait of their energetic heart chamber using soft sculpture video and sound installation where people could enter and digest the content that was being shared at the rest of the show.
