Endlessly curious and enthusiastic about the movement in relation to the mind, body and soul. My artistic practice is based on revisiting, recreating, deconstructing, questioning, and transforming dance. Each creation emerges integrating singing, voice, noise, sound and video. I've been preoccupied with unfolding racism, colorism, decolonial practices, heritage, healing, climate change, technology and intersectionality. Playing with shifting perspectives and combining opposite ideas that converge to a vision of a either tragic or glorious future.
