Artist’s Statement

I make performances, experiences, language, objects, and ideas. These sometimes look like: a dance, an animation, an essay, a university course, a new performance space. I’m obsessed with the moments in which seemingly unrelated fields and ways of being in the world meet. I’m passionate about the movement of ideas, the choreography of language, the intelligence of bodies, the ways formal constraints open up possibilities, and the ways all of these invite us to grapple with fundamental human questions. I make and teach and share art because it offers practice in being in the unknown – in ambiguity, in questions, in imagination, in creating something from nothing, in grappling with gaps in communication, and, sometimes, in moments of thrilling presence. I care about complexity and questions for which there are no answers, time spent with other human beings learning about ourselves, and, hopefully, each other.
