I have enjoyed working with Joshua’s natural range, his ability to embody very technical skills and his generous spirit during our process together. As I had anticipated, the potential blending of both of our worlds has expanded us creatively and our collaboration has been impactful. In order to create novel expressions with his body, my intention has been to push Joshua’s abilities toward a fuller physicality and for him to work from a different physical direction.
