With attention to form, process, and nuance, I make work that affirms the meaningful state of our subtle, fragile bodies. I use practices of improvisation and authentic movement as investigative methods towards sensation, pleasure, and the experience of seeing and being seen. I am curious about how we transfer the raw and spontaneous experience of process into performance, and am interested in exploring engagement in the performance moment in and of itself.... in the possibility of being fully present (intimate?), the value of the abstracted form, and the transformational healing of performance as authenticity. These artistic concerns most dramatically revealed themselves through my years of work as a site-specific performer, making and sharing art as “happenings” in public spaces, but also inevitably through practices of movement research and excavation of that which is contained by the body.
