I am interested in how physical practices create different bodies; human bodies, bodies of interest, bodies that become instrumental in creating ways of communicating, contexts to perform in, ways of existing together. The projects that I initiate are important to me in the entirety of their process and the making public by way of a performance or installation is only one of the ways they exist. In the projects and works created for groups of performers, I focus on the processes of doing things together; in collaborative processes those processes become part of the subject of the work. My practice creates different bodies that are subject and object of the decision making process embedded in my choreographic work.
