My work as a choreographer addresses the relevancy of movement in the modern world by connecting to the body as a source of history and knowledge. I celebrate the unexpected and challenge the edges between control and wildness through movement language that is both sensual and athletic. I maintain the belief that there is deep knowledge that already exists within the body, and my process works to unlock that knowledge through persistence and exploration.
