i work with an original movement language that i have developed, characterized by the use of articulations, joint separations, and contrast between tension and slack, fractured and released movements. i work with the imagination, asking how a body can both discover and express fantasies through movement. each body has the potential to manifest a unique landscape, an exteriorisation to be uncovered out of the body’s own history.
