ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a transdisciplinary artist who dances and works with dance. I design and build performance installations that are made with and create the conditions for dancing. I apply choreographic and embodied processes for dance making to my works in ceramics, film, painting, sculpture, sound and text.

Dancing with people, life forms, materials and structures in the places I live and the spaces I move through, I nurture and reciprocate care, healing open the closures between fragmented dimensions of reality that touch us and our world deeply.

My work examines and synthesises material, sensory and spiritual dimensions of the self with the world and with others to find new and different ways of perceiving, doing, and being in the world that soften hardened institutions, stewarding life to thrive.
