I am a multi-media artist working in performance, film/video, and writing. The origins of my practice are rooted in classical ballet. As a child in response to trauma, words and language escaped me which brought about a fearful relationship to my own voice and a comfort in silence. Movement was essentially my mode of coping and expression. Today, language (writing) and movement (choreography) are the fundamentals of my analysis of performance art. Framed by the human condition, in my work I formally explore relationships between people, the inner self (the profundity of being and becoming), sound and the inadequacy of language for conditions like, loss, love, and grief, inner and exterior space (confinement, liminality), and physicalized metaphor.
