I see movement as a language.I see movement as a language. By listening to our bodies speaking, we can access wisdom and ways of relating different from that offered through spoken language. Through non-verbal communication, movement improvisation offers a way to make self-empowered, holistic, educated choices about relationships.

Have people see things in a different way.That’s a lot of what I’m trying to do with my work: expose people to people with all kinds of bodies, on stage or in an art installation, with the hopes that seeing a diverse group will redefine what they see as beautiful, or virtuosic—to shatter stereotypes, have people see things in a different way.
