...hidden stories/tiny revelations slowly revealed, discoveries emerging, movement from stillness, sound from silence, the grey area between what is known/not known where possibilities exist,

She is a fearless virtuoso with a sophisticated, instinctive sense of timing. Her dances, made of straight body language bent and twisted to her purposes, are alternately violent and tender.

Rather than re-build a venue, she'll re-imagine it. Site: A truck parked outside a theatre. Roll up door is stage curtain. Trio inside, lit by flashlights and street lamps. Tether, tension. When it's over, truck drives away

Abandon and control... more questions than answers, exposing what is hidden, digressions, tangents.

Dance: quickly changing, embodied, malleable, reflecting the changing nature of the body, the quickly shifting world around us.

The emotional body, the intellectual body, the spiritual body, the physical body. All of these considered, all of these in tandem, all of these, all the time in practice.

"I work in the medium of dance but don't necessarily think of myself as a choreographer. i'm someone who goes into a studio and works with my body because to me, the body is most expressive and reflective of all parts of who i am.

Often moving away from technical or even choreographic prowess or virtuosity, I am interested in the virtuosity of human endeavor and imperfections and limitations."
