– John Cage
I am a choreographer.
I collect & curate movement, sound, & ideas in the effort to produce visceral or poignant experiences for performers and audience members.
I am often interested in the juxtaposition of seemingly opposing material. Minimalism, Contrast, and a Baroque-Like sense of detail are concepts I find myself coming back to over and over again. Most of my current work focuses on partner dancing, though I have long said that every dance is a partner dance.
In the Blues Dance world, I am known for pushing the edges of the genre. Before each piece I ask “What does the community need? What haven’t they seen yet?”. My work is very influenced by my research and historical perspective.
