Always Carry a Light Bulb explores how creativity works in the Brain. This educational multimedia work encompasses a mixture of scientific research, history, and improvisation through a variety of dance genres, text and visual media. The work culminates with a symbolic representation of an idea, the light bulb used as a partner in the Polka.

The work was created in collaboration with a cast of five dancers and one actor from the University of Kentucky and first premiered in 2013 as part of the University of Kentucky, Department of Theatre and Dance Winter Dance Concert: Loud and Clear

The Work was also performed at the National Dance Education Organization in Miami, Florida in 2013.
