My dances explore structure, its underpinnings and the human nature that
challenges, subverts and renews itself within these boundaries.
My various works have addressed: the seemingly unending gap between
communication and isolation; routines that give us feelings of safety but
which can also prevent us from noticing other subtle changes; remembering
and forgetting and what truth lies in the in between; tension between
resistance and our natural physical decline; and the contrasts
between abstract and literal dance.
Overall, I am interested in investigating and sparking movement vocabulary
that engages a common human reaction. In the process of creation, I often
begin with my own experiences, transform them into movement and use
movement to find the composition. Experiences, movement and choreography
are in conversation, mutually influencing each other. I am vitally
interested in physical dancing and finding innovative ways to challenge
and invigorate new movement vocabulary that reveals shared concerns with
how we exist in our world now. There is alwaysan emotional content, but
I let movement have its own abstract and multilayered relation to these
thoughts, images, stories. I let the body become the central place where
these layers come together; my intent is to project the emotional
underpinnings to the audience.
