ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is reflective of an ongoing conversation between the cosmic and the corporeal, between the present and intimate worlds of today, whether it be physical, emotional, or spiritual; and lands distant in terms of both space and memory. Through choreography, text, and sound I examine how new and preexisting paradigms can manifest into reimagined states of abstraction. Embedded in the work is also both a reflective and intimate form of syncretism between my native cultural understandings and that of a land I have had to assimilate into. 


I value the power of human imagination and its ability to shift and transcend through our current realities. It is through this imagination that I often contemplate questions pertaining to the healing of present and past traumas as well as existing in a present where the future is both unknown and unforeseeable. Through this reimagination of worlds and possibilities unknown, I aim for my work to serve as a base for nuanced and innovative reflections of daily life and the infinite possibilities and changes that can transpire.
