Emma Lanier and Ky Frances (Kickbal) received the 2020 ODC Theater Fleishhacker Opportunity Fund to present HOMEBODY, an evening-length work featuring five dancers and an original score by composer Melissa Weikart.

Personal and abstract, HOMEBODY is a series of unexpected episodes, distinct in content, but all inexplicably organized around the color yellow. The show was slated to take place in April 2020, and was cancelled. An outdoor iteration in December 2020 was also cancelled. Kickbal worked with filmmakers Naomi Garcia Pasmanick and LaTajh Weaver to document what happened in outdoor rehearsals during the pandemic. The film includes Julie Crothers, Ky Frances, Audrey Johnson, Emma Lanier, Chelsea Reichert, and Cauveri Suresh.
