My choreography pairs deep sociological investigation with idiosyncratic, flirtatious celebration. Polyrhythmic and percussive impulses drive intricacy and curiosity in both solo and group work. Through a deconstruction of physical tension in space, I hope to reveal political tensions in our world and bring focus to moments of calm, chaos and conviction.
