As an artist and choreographer I present work in both dance and visual arts contexts. Formally trained in visual art, my practice is rooted in social dance through Bboying (Breakdancing) and House dance.
My practice incorporates contemporary choreographic and improvisational practices. II often develop works which combining video, the body and sculpture to explore choreographic relations between gesture, context and their affects. My work explores how We handle things; people, objects and how objects handle Us through: environments, architecture, and social structures. Specifically I am very interested in the power of dance to change and create new spaces.
