"I am interested in facilitating communal experiences and interactions, by creating works that are connected to the people and time around me. Through collaboration, devising, and storytelling I work to bring to life, dance theater, and film projects. I work with an amalgam of elements, inspired by everyday gestures, traditional forms as well as contemporary movement expressions; in order to create a hybrid artistic language."
