As a maker, I am thrilled, fundamentally, by the unexplored potential of liveness, as both subject and form.
This currently translates to the pursuit of hyperlocal, documentary-based works that fuse verbatim text, design, and dance composition towards the reimagination of social realities in theatrical space. Through the reconstitution of formal elements of dance, theater, and film, I seek to create imaginative, communal events that explode the pedestrian and elevate what is deeply human, and thus deeply shared, about us.
My practice, being both artistic and social, is driven in equal parts by spiritual demand and a belief in the capacity of performance arts to provoke critical imagining, to speculate new forms of collective participation, and to create deep community across cultural borders.
I am, perhaps, most inspired by the ability of humans to surprise themselves — that and my grandmother’s taste.
