Artistic Vision

I am curious about the subtleties of the human condition. Through dance and text, I tend to look at the duality of wanting to be present for others while grappling with personal desires. I enjoy investigating unpredictable, jagged movement that is motivated by a sense of survival and communication. To contrast this struggle, I also contemplate the expression of a heavenly body by researching flow, fluid floor work and an almost boneless dance.
