My work is a collage of intimate narratives that thrive to expand the possibilities of experimental dance theater; utilizing a range of disciplines to create innovative methods of storytelling, I make work that is honest, not overly manipulated or refined; slices of life depicted as they really are. Through my choreographic process I investigate dance as an anthropological storytelling device through cultural, historical and modern day lenses.
