With the body as the medium, dancers are visual artists embodied. Through a non-verbal language, there must be a willingness to share the whole self. I create dance performances that are in collaboration with live music and film and am drawn to work with other artists who are messy, real, believe in ghosts and are amazed by the infinite nature of the universe.
My performance work has been described as cinematic, surreal and minimal. I am interested in the upheaval of memory and perception. I revel in the absurdity of beauty and the haunting power of disorientation. To fragment and surrender, this is at the core of my aesthetic.
