Current work description:
“I’m making this dance that is a reflection of my life. It is a poem to myself and for myself, a re-experience of paradoxical moments - some thrilling, some beautiful, some quietly painful and so many confusing - in my relationship to this city and to my dreams. Through metaphor and shadow play I can transform my perception and re-imagine my life. The story I’m making is to share with anyone who has dreams tethered to this city. Wrapped up together - the city, me and my desires - we are tangled, spinning, stopping, waiting and transforming. Using Jenga game pieces, shadows and light, tape and a rolling suitcase, I manifest a world of transient aspirations and defeats.
