My work is inspired by what it means to be human. I value relationships, responses, and reactions of people to their environments. I am fascinated by the ability of humans to adapt to death, abuse, love, and success. My choreography is rooted in the concept of transitions and framed by the individuality of my dancers. The practice of improvisation is central to my creative process, and I urge my dancers to locate disorientation and use it as a tool to trigger creative adaptability in movement. This investigation serves as a window to what I believe is the natural human condition where emotions run wild.
