Biography

I work with actions and dance for video. Exploring different movements and effects of these on different materials and objects. Conversely, later work as explored the effects of objects and materials on the body. Sometimes I work from a conventional dance repertory broken or pared down to a task-like activity always in mind of breaking down theatricality to a situation that represents more like real life. The movements are brief and explosive. Sometimes pieces are a matter of seconds. Drawing remains a constant theme in my work transferring the physical movement of line into a material form.
