Selected Choreographic Work

 

Choreographing is a daring and vulnerable act. To create dance is to expose your genuine self, ideas, and emotions with others. For me, it is also a way of thinking about the world and about the people in it. I make dances to deeply explore experiences, philosophies, stories, personas, or phenomena. Choreographing is my activism. Choreographing strengthens my understanding, increases my capacity for empathy, and profoundly connects me to other people.For me, a successful dance is one that is carefully crafted, thoughtful, and genuine. While my own creative process continually undergoes change, the goal for my work remains the same: to bring to life an individual perspective on the world, no matter how dark or humorous, painful or euphoric.
