CHOREOGRAPHY

As a creative and performance artist, I am deeply interested and invested in creating meaningful work that constantly questions, challenges, and seeks to ignite progressive agency within the field. It is important that my work be an authentic reflection of my core values, my artistic aesthetic, and the world around me. My movement style is a blend of African Diasporan movement styles and traditions in addition to modern, hip-hop, ballet, and jazz influences. I am interested in breaking the veil between performer and observer, allowing space, time, and energy for intersected kinesthetic and visceral exchanges to occur in performance. Improvisation, call and response, and communal elements are always present within my work.
