I am enamored with the “human-ness” of dance.

 What does this mean? I love to see the body in motion, but I always want to learn something about the person inside of the technique. Therefore, even in the more abstract pieces that I choreograph, those with complexity in the use of space, rhythm and other design elements, the most important factor remains the relationships created. I seek to develop relationships amongst  the performers themselves and between them and their audience. My choreography combines original text, momentum-based movement, gesture and projection.  I often explore “life issues” and am interested in using personal narrative to explore universal experience. Topics for IMPACT projects have included immigration, discrimination, self-identity, grief and loss and the universal need for home. I also enjoy creating work that is quirky, humorous and odd. I find great beauty in awkwardness and I delight in the surprise of examining the human experience through movement and spoken word.
