The Rule of Life
 Co-Director, Choreographer, Sound
http://youtu.be/dp0I7AcsgrY
“The direction was phenomenal. ...Each element [was] thoroughly conceived and actualized. ...The choreography was detailed. Nuanced. Specific. And governed by dynamic phrasing. … It was like you (the performers) were living it and experiencing it and I was just there for the ride.” – Nicole Bradley Browning, U of Montana

June 6, 2011 - Arte Studio Ginestrelle, Assisi, IT
Oct. 3-15, 2011 - Gallerie de Logge, Assisi, IT
Forbidden Fruit Choreographer
“It is important to mention the unique sound score that Garibaldi has selected for this piece, as it becomes a driving force in the work. Usually a choreographic work set to many different pieces of music can seem fragmented or more like a suite of dances instead of one long piece; however, in Forbidden Fruit, the music continues to propel the piece forward as the songs bring the audience back to a time when women were seen as sexy and beautiful without being overly vulgar. …There is a moment in the piece  during which a barefooted soloist exquisitely performs a sensual movement phrase involving many long, deep, lunges, beautifully articulate back undulations and extreme arches, and numerous high leg extensions: moves often associated with a gorgeous dancer. While this woman is practically killing herself to perform this fierce choreography, the other dancers are crisscrossing the stage wearing their high heels, completely ignoring the soloist that constantly intersects their pathway and unaware of this rare beauty right in front of them. This audience member was enthralled by the performance of the soloist and envious of her abilities.”

Push
Choreographer, Costumer
(2nd Alternate, NW Region, ACDFA National Gala, Kennedy Center, Washington D.C.)
“The way she thrust her weight into space was tremendous. The risks she took in standing on this one leg after twirling with so much force off balance forever; this woman was taking risks. I heard every single word, I saw every single movement. I understood the momentum of it; I love how she thrust into the space. Did I understand her meaning? Not completely, but I was so intrigued. So intrigued. Is she going to throw herself in front of the train? Or was she pushing on towards Life? It was like the intersection of Life and Death. That sometimes there are particular times in your life where you have to make huge decisions, it feels like that.”- Ze’eva Cohen, Professor, Princeton University

“The text and the movement was completely woven and integrated and the text was presented in a way that was rhythmic and really created an ebb and flow of her journey and I thought that was really powerful, so congratulations to the choreographer and the dancer for being able to do this really well. The landscape was very rich, very textured and the journey, again, was very fluid. I also appreciated the fact that the text really spoke to some very, for lack of a better way to say it, heavy things but the piece didn’t feel necessarily heavy and overbearing and end of the world. And so there is something in that, for lack of a better word, that’s clever, or practive of how you bring in content that is strong and not have it overpower everything but be able to make the statement and flow in and out of it. That was something also that I really appreciated about the work. I thought it was lovely.”– Helanius Wilkins, Artistic Director, Edgeworks

Landscaping for Privacy, Idaho State University, Choreographer
“…an evening length piece of movement, drama, and music was never dull from beginning to end.  Each episode painted a picture both bleak and hopeful; haunting, poignant, and lasting…artfully does the work of revealing anew the ethos of our society”. - Paul C. Ocampo, Associate Professor of Dance, Southern Utah University

Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA,Producer/Director
At the Threshold Director, Choreographer, Sound Score
At the Threshold features a provocative, thought out, powerful and nicely constructed audio score. The tension created by the prison sounding doors and the frenzied whispering not only created a textural impression but a qualitative experience for the viewer sitting in the dark […]. The opening sequence uses the stage space as if it were a black lake between the audience and the dancer balanced in the threshold. The opening solo drew me into this in-between world, a threshold net of trapped dreams and thoughts unable to move forward or backward just stuck in a vertical world, balanced and wedged into the situation, trying to function, trying to step forward […] I was moved by this work. Philosophically I was left thinking about opportunity knocking. Braving the fear and the choice of walking though a door into the unknown. What is beyond? What gets left behind? What happens next? And as the score says ‘When a door closes, what do you do?’”– Elizabeth Miklavcic, Artistic Director, Another Language Performance Company

2008
On the Backs of Our Mothers Callous Physical Theatre. Director, Choreographer, Performer, Writer.
“[A]  powerful tapestry of memory and women’s stories from seven female Barefoot dancers. On the Backs of Our Mothers links each dancer’s train-related memory or emotion in a series of solos backed by ensemble choreography. Each story includes verbal poetry or narrative, journalled and choreographed by the dancer herself. Josephine Zmolek, the overall director, was a joy to watch as she told her central story (her grandfather, killed by a train while her grandmother was pregnant with her mother) passionately and directly, her gestures a mixture of sensuous and curt, detailing everything from a feisty grandmother to a wild three-year-old.”- Rosemary Ponnekanti, Tacoma News Tribune.

Zaum: Beyond Significance, Director/Choreographer
“We hear the labored breath of dancers, and the sometimes irregular and violent impact of dancers’ bodies with the stage, with themselves, and with one another. This somatic presence is not veiled by choreography that would distract us from the work of the dancers. Instead, the choreography throws into stark relief the actuality of that work.” Cathy B. Glenn, SIUC
Landscaping for Privacy, Choreographer
“Sometimes theater provides an experience where you hold your breath because you don't want the spell to be broken by some misstep or even a cough. Audiences may find themselves breathless for most of the 33 minutes of "Landscaping for Privacy,"... as intellectually engaging as it is physically enthralling, a dance theater piece that manages to be both sublime and confrontational in posing questions about American society.” Sam Blackwell, The Southeast Missourian
