Artist Statement

I believe in fearless exploration.

My work is about pushing to the edges. Asking both the performer and the audience to look beyond the expected, to experience things from a new perspective. It is examination in realtime of self, body, place and experience; how they inform, shape, and define each other in the transitions, in the spaces between. I am always looking at how movement, habit, and intention shape how we experience and interact in our landscapes, both inner and outer. In this, the body is our interface.

My work is site specific. The site defines the creative process that informs the performance, and the audience’s experience. With each performance, every participant--dancer, artist, performer and viewer--becomes an active collaborator; the experience is uniquely theirs, shaped by the space and the movement.
