I believe that to dance, right now, is to be courageous in the face indoctrinated, mediocre, and conditional being. I seek to illuminate the underbelly of consciousness by cultivating compassionate listening and deliberate consideration through performance practices. Choreography creates a container where performer is tasked with charging the space, eliciting sensation, igniting curiosity, and imprinting empathy.
With an inclination toward absurdity and vanity I create solo dance-theatre performance using storytelling, movement exercises, and performed rituals. My work re-appropriates popular culture, unpacks New Age esoteric jargon, and hijacks self help talk.
Instead of writing an essay or making a movie, I believe that making performance is a more meaningful way I can engage in dialogue. Our media saturated world often makes me feel disconnected from those I care most about. With live performance, there’s less room for distraction.
