Artist Statement

_______________________________________________

With a consideration for emotional sensitivity, my work is designed to reflect individuals and their oppressive history. I reflect oppression as a denominator of individual and collective trauma, institutionalized in the social and family unit.
In my practice, movement language derives from body patterns and attitudes that evoke stigmas, archetypes, amongst other cultural forms of oppression. In this practice I utilize dance, theatre and poetic writing, and film.


I envision that my responsibility as an artist is not only to share a creative result. It is also to bring awareness and to create discursive platforms where change can be, if not achieved, then collectively reflected. I believe this reflection to be one of the fundamentals of a healthy [artistic] community.
