Artist's Statement
I love the simple human things; a gesture, a walk, standing, a finger. Watching people move fascinates me and stirs my emotions unlike any other art form. Dancing exposes the flesh, feelings, and tensions locked up inside the muscles and bones, making the invisible spine visible. Everything, everything, everything is contained in the body, no need for words or acting. Just give a dancer a true, authentic gesture and you will have the beginning of an idea or story. The choreographic process is full of hope and choices and if I remain true to the tangible elements that I am working with then I know all will be well.
