As an artist and choreographer I present work in both dance and visual arts contexts. Formally trained in visual art, I have been dancing for over 15 years initially as a Bboy/breakdancer. I develop compositions combining video, the body and text to explore choreographic relations between gesture, context and their affects. My current work explores how We handle things; people, objects and how objects handle Us through: environments, architecture, and social structures. Can the gallery and the choreographic field provide a space to present and re-examine these relations that our bodies are in constant dialogue with?
As part of my practice, discussion is very important for my continued critical engagement. For the past year I have organised and facilitated "Reading. Talking. Performance." a bi-monthly reading and discussion group focused on theory and texts relating indirectly or directly to contemporary performance.
