My performances use precise choreography, dry humor and perceptual disorientation to address forms of empire, colonization, and surveillance. I build them from vernacular movement that non-dancers can relate to (like procrastination, for example). This humble source material is given the “formalist treatment” to become complex, densely layered choreography, from which human fragility and bravery shines. My performances marvel at the everyday heroism of people who speak back to systems of power and strive to become fully alive and conscious.
