a field of crowns is a place for the collection of Andrew Gaboury’s creative projects. The projects focus on collaborative development and facilitation of new multi-disciplinary performances and community interventions through a physical lens. I am interested in making performance a platform for joy, wonder beyond the everyday, exchange and empowerment.
