Artist Statement

To me, performance is a conversation. I aim to make situations where viewer and viewed are mutually affecting, experiences that wake up body and mind. I do this through reframing our relationship to architectural space and interaction, engaging audiences in the context of their real lives, and asking them to relate differently to each other and to their surroundings. I am also motivated by the question: As artists and socially conscious citizens, how can we make lasting cultural changes that create a more just, sustainable, enjoyable and accepting society? I want to draw the audience in in a way that allows them to examine their own sense of responsibility for and complicity in the decisions that control their lives.
