My work as a choreographer addresses the body as a source of knowledge and history, using endurance and memory to unlock its inherent intelligence. I strive to find a balance between storytelling and abstraction, to create movement that is sensual and athletic, blurring the lines of control and chaos. I am fascinated by disturbing and altering our sense of time, so we can get lost and experience our surroundings in a transformative fashion.
