I am an improviser, primarily working though dancing and cooking. My mission: to nourish people through the practices of collective improvisation, collaboration, and care. 

My food is inspired by a plethora of cooks, books, recipes, artists, experiences and memories.

Is a queer multimedia artist and performer, born and raised within Canarsie and Munsee Lenape lands. They have had the privilege of calling many lands their home, and they remain critically+somatically inquisitive about what it means to occupy stolen land. Julianne’s practice is tuned through improvisation with a focus on Contact Improvisation, chronic pleasure, connecting to the more-than-human world, and the dance of self-preservation. Cariño's most recent work is in touch with the depth and resonance of layered vocal sounding as a portal into the body, as a companion to processing memory and expressions of the heart.
