To me dance represents the endless possibilities that the bodily instrument possesses. Each human has a natural style of moving that is distinct to them and is a part of their personality. Through my work I strive to showcase my unique style as well as that of my dancers. Through my years of dance training I have come to realize that I most enjoy moving without the restrictions of codified dance styles. My choreography includes strong inventive movement that mixes pedestrian gestures with quirky details and unique musicality.
Comedy plays a vital role in my dance making because I believe it has the power to shed light on important issues and make light of human experiences. In my artistic process I find a variety of ways to showcase an idea, often using extremes or contrast to highlight or parody the concept. I believe humor is an amazing tool because it allows audiences to relate to the work but it also causes them to think and evaluate their own lives.
As a choreographer I like to challenge what is expected of a dancer and I strive to incorporate dancers into my process by giving them agency within my work. When audiences view my work I want them to enter the world that I have constructed and come out feeling like they have gained insight into my mind, found familiarity, and experienced a distinct human touch.
