My current work navigates various mysticisms and philosophy to cultivate new psycho-spiritual models for movement investigation and multimedia dance performance. I see the studio as an artistic and spiritual space for advancing the brain and body into excitatory (high energy, exhausting) or inhibitory (meditative and contemplative) states of gnosis, play, and movement research.
Movement invention is a priority of mine, and so I have devoted most of my career to the development of "Apophenian Phrasework", a choreographic vocabulary that demonstrates the illusion of fixity in a world of motion. Described as a unique fusion of contemporary and hip hop, this intricate and hyper dexterous movement language is at the forefront of dance innovation. The style augments the human tendency to see patterns on stochastic visual data, rendering a visual representation of the human condition to categorize, fix, define, and label experience. It fuses geometric design, intricate gesture and street styles onto classical form to produce a richly hypnotic and hieroglyphic style.
These methodologies collide with multimedia elements including interactive video projection, poetry, and sound design, to create cerebral, interdisciplinary performance works. My work explores various subject matters, often interfacing the fluid organism with the solid, sterile systems and technology of our zeitgeist.
