Artist Statement

I make dances because I understand the world and myself through movement.  Dance acts as a filter through which I view and process the world. My choreography experiments with the relationship between anatomy and space. Sometimes I take a close up look at one bone and how it can be moved through space.  In other work I let the space direct the movement of my body.  My work is often playful and I invite the audience to participate as a way of understanding from within.  The dances I make are part of ongoing research into the in-between spaces: the space between narrative and abstraction, between choreography and improvisation, and between performance and rehearsal.
