I seek the genuine and raw...
sincere narratives, truths, movers that are true to their bodies and beliefs. I seek movement that tells real stories, and unravels the inner workings of the viewer.
I believe in art as a means to share silenced topics.
I believe in performance that dares to bring real things to the surface.
I strive to empower both performer and viewer to find comfort and solace in the unique complexities of the individual self. I strive to explore mental health and the effects of trauma in the body through movement.
