Grandma "Joshua" Baker (Set Designer) Joshua is very excited to be working on this project. The whole aesthetic appeals to that geek in his heart and the queer in his head. He is especially proud to be co-designing with the very talented Mr. Stover and would like to wish the viewers a long life, but hopefully not too long.
Kimberly Caterino (Dancer) Full-blown Sagittarian with Cancer moon, pseudo-Impressionistic painter, faker of West African dance and part-time radio geek, former educator... current screengazer, earth lover with too many degrees. Believer of love like Dolly. Inventor of “find the beauty” – an approach to life. Thanks to Tonya Pennie and The Experiment’s cast and crew for the invitation to be a writhing, undulating Other! Thanks to all my teachers, inspirations, and fellow artists who make me come alive.
