My work pushes into female sexuality, and the dark corners of the female psyche. It explores the bizarre forms of connection that are created through close physical work, oscillating between mechanical alienation and psycho-sexual attachment.
I create difficult scenarios for performers to execute movement and there lies an inherent struggle that is physically and emotionally real. This struggle relates to the strife between females and how we struggle within our relationships and feelings towards each other. I work to strip away the performance of these movement situations getting to a genuine place of doing rather than performing.
