I am an emerging dance artist, choreographer and Co-Artistic Director of Near&Far Projects. I make dance which attempts to sort through my epistemological curiosities and further understand metaphysical questions about the world.
I use durational improvisation and reflective writing prompts as a method of research. My methodology includes asking a broad, unspecific philosophical question and focusing in on responses. My work derives from a highly cognitive state of academia, drawing a parallel between the mind and body in physical and experimental movement. My work transposes the processes of the mind into the work of the body. I aim to blend theory and movement in a way that brings awareness to the presentation of ideas.
I am passionate about dance that acts as a vehicle for social awareness and change. I believe that the arts, including dance, have the power and ability to change a person’s perception or understanding. I create dance for that reason: to bring awareness, to understand and to respond to my questions and curiosities in and about the world.
