I aim to uncover the truth beneath the surface of human perception. I question and dive into the realities of the individual psyche and social stigmas that take us away from reaching our own true liberation. My goal is to harshly pose these questions through the exceed the word language of dance and mixed media in order to inspire positive change within audience members.
