Grounded in the traditions of dance and choreography, my projects develop from issues that affect the community where I live and work. This community may be global, localized, political, or gendered, as the space each project occupies includes with it multiple, diverse, socially specific narratives. This practice has led me into inquiries about radical methods of research, social engagement and activism in the public domain. The opportunity to re-invent the iterative process of art making by engaging the social context where the art is conceptualized and produced, captivates me and leads me toward new thinking.
