VIEW MY FULL CV:
“My mission is to create and participate in honest, intimate work which exposes the lens through which I view the nature of our world. I am interested in capturing the personalities and unique qualities of the people I work with while creating environments together in which viewers experience empathy and are encouraged to engage in a topic at a deeper level. In my creative process I use a variety of mindful creative tasks, imagery, and other forms like literary work, music or visual art to generate movement. I like to explore physical extremes and storytelling through movement by mixing set choreography with improvisation. A current focus of mine, is exploring creative ways of linking holistic health and dance”

COMING UP NEXT!
“These words before all else”
A new solo work supported by the Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg.
‘These words before all else,’ is the opening line to a Native American prayer called the Thanksgiving Address. It was created over 1,000 years ago and eloquently recognises the many gifts in our human lives. It notes that being human is an honour requiring mindful gratitude. Reciting this prayer is a practice that allows us to find our way back to the natural world by greeting various elements of the environment. It reminds us that we humans are not in charge of the world, but are subject to the same forces as the rest of life.
This is a new work-in-progress where the Thanksgiving Address is being translated into a movement prayer. Stay tuned for further details!
