Most recently, Lashbrook has began creating works of her own. She choreographed for recording artist Lois Mackay for her music video Grey. Lashbrook also co-choreographed as part of Off the Wall, a large group site specific collaborative performance. The piece created was then commissioned for a performance as part of the Manifesto festival.
Her work with Form CDT began with the performance of Reverie in 2014 and has thus resulted in a role in Form & Fixation as part of the 2015 Hamilton Fringe, and Reflective/Vulnerable, the company’s full-length work presented at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre in 2016. Lashbrook’s up and coming project, Parentheses, is in collaboration with Lisa Emmons, artistic director of Form CDT. They are both very excited to adapt, expand and collaborate on this work with the Burlington Whole Shebang for the June 2016 performance.
