I create work from a deep curiosity in humanity, in life. I am interested in the strength of exposed vulnerabilities. And humor. I’m interested in all sorts of movement and aesthetics, especially drawn to the awkward, ‘folk’ and improvisatory. My work arises from a continuous balance between pragmatic social engagement and awe of the logic of improvisational, abstract art.
My work deals with subtle, internal sensation as it relates to tacit + implicit knowledge and social sense-making. I deal with these topics through performance, workshops and intersubjective interview-research. My research is inter-
disciplinary, focused on the enactive approach as it relates to mindful, improvised dance, perspectives in biological sciences, cognitive science, phenomenology and meditation practice.
I teach and create work with both trained and untrained performers. I have worked with countless, astounding artists in professional and ‘underground’ contexts in the US: New Orleans, NYC, the Blue Ridge Mountains, Bread and Puppet Theater, as well as working internationally (Puerto Rico, Germany, Canada, Palestine, Greece + Slovenia) – creating music, theater, dance, puppet shows, video, and creations which do not quite fit into a genre.
I am based in New Orleans.
