My work is grounded in the languages of the moving, writing, and speaking body. As an artist, my practices as a writer, dancer, and translator do not exist in isolation, even if the connections between them are sometimes mysterious. I am less interested in defining myself in one medium or language than in finding fresh ways to forge connections that create a renewed sense of freedom. My choreographic work is approached from a place of body listening, influenced by my training in improvisation & instant composition, butoh, and somatic research. This practice also extends to collaborating with artists on cross-disciplinary research and performance projects, and to sharing my knowledge by teaching workshops on composition in movement, text, and performance.
