I often ask myself how I can be a fuller, more expressive artist. I believe the answer is within the act of creation and collaboration in discussion, experimentation, and research into the historical, societal, and conceptual ramifications of the body. I believe that the physicality of dance can be matched on emotional, and intellectual levels in order to yield work that expands beyond its own aesthetic ego and is impactful to society.
This ethos is directly informed by my work as a collaborator, and co-director of the dance collective BODYSONNET. BODYSONNET, is a group of dance makers who create site-specific works in residency style models inspired by communities where dance is not readily available.
