As an artist and choreographer I present work in both dance and visual arts contexts. Formally trained in visual art, I have been dancing for over 15 years as a bboy/breakdancer. I develop compositions combining video, the body and text to explore choreographic relations between gesture, context and their affects. My current work explores how We handle things; people, objects and how objects handle Us through: environments, architecture, and social structures. Can the gallery and the choreographic field provide a space to present and re-examine these relations that our bodies are in constant dialogue with?
