Artist Statement:

As an individual, I am captivated by the probability of change and how that influences my artistic process in dance-making, performing, and researching. 

Because I strongly oppose inauthenticity, I find my community with artists who also create what they determine to most vital.

 

By ruffling consciousnesses and disturbing comfortability, my work strives to leave observers without a clear translation.

 

To immerse observers into the conversation, I play with storytelling, literary intertextuality, a spectrum of pedestrian and contemporary concert movement, and a conglomeration of theatrical elements including extravagant costumes and props. 

Ultimately, my work does not allow for the observer’s nonchalance or disingenuous involvement; it encourages introspection and questions that must be voiced.
