I am a process-based dancemaker interested in the transformative places and spaces movement creates for dialogues and discoveries. I engage communities by using art as a catalyst for building relationships. I am most interested in creating low tech site specific and site adaptive pieces that can be staged in non-traditional dance spaces. My work has been staged in museums, art galleries, warehouses, community centers in low income and underserved areas, restaurants and formal dining rooms, the patios of hotels, in water fountains and landscaping planters, and on the back of classic pickup trucks. I believe that dance can appeal to larger and more diverse audiences when staged in non-traditional spaces. My work is grounded in and inspired by the landscape, languages, cultures, and the aesthetics of the lands in which I was born and raised, the U.S. Southwest. In general, my work is very intimate and is best experienced without a fourth wall.
