ARTIST STATEMENT

 

 

Dance expresses the sensory experience of being alive.  My mission as a choreographer is to bring people into the core of human experience.  I make art that explores biology and instinct with the goal of bringing the audience and performer alike, into a more embodied experience of who we are as creative and physical beings.​  This after all is how we connect with ourselves and with others.

 

I approach my work in movement with instinct rather than intellect.  My choreography is emotionally and aesthetically driven.  I draw from my personal experiences and somatic research.  I do not focus on narrative, rather on creating a sensory and emotional experience in order to attune to a dynamic quality of presence.  For me this leads to a rich embodiment of the present moment, creating a dynamic shared experience between performer and audience.
