artist’s statement

 

I am a dancer and dance maker who works to bring worlds and moments to life using imagery, sensation, and mood. Throughout the creative process I encourage and cultivate individuality through an emphasis on curiosity and exploration. I think of bodies as research vessels charting both physical and psychological limits and boundaries. I enjoy witnessing wit and the intersection of instinct and intellect. Lines, shapes, and motion drive me wild. I view dancers as architects, creating impermanent structures with form, space, and time. Individuality, both in myself and my collaborators, provides a lens for the audience to intimately experience the happenings onstage. I want audiences to experience things in real time, to feel what the dancers feel, to see what the dancers see.
