Artist Statement(s)

I dance and I write stories. I use movement and words to help me think about how we as people might truly come together through coalition and treat ourselves, each other, animals, plants, and the land with genuine care.

I am interested in concepts of walking and space, geography, history, rural identity, scores, chance operations, repetition, self-injury and trauma, non-verbal communication and movement.

As a teacher I am interested in environmental and place-based education, and developmentally appropriate practice as it concerns the teaching of dance to children and adults.

I believe in restraint, resistance and resilience as critical tools for art-making, joyous survival, and coexistence.
