Artist Statement

My work is my adventurer’s journal.

To me the process is part of the performance, the performance part of the process.

When creating, I like to do as much as I can by myself.

The practical obstacles often become an impulse for the artistic process.

My roots are in breakdance,

and the body in motion is a key element in my work.

 

I am drawn to use performance theatre as a way to conduct meditative-like exercises.

How can a state of meditation provoke imagination,

to shape new perspectives on our human lives.

 

I hope you question my theories.

As I believe it is our exchange that matters,

not who is stating the facts.

Involvement is what shapes meaning into it’s most authentic form.

For me there is no separation between you and I.

we both are particles of the same phenomenon; that what we call Life.

 

To find out I’m wrong means to sink into a greater level of understanding.

I believe truth is not to be held,

but to be chased infinitely.

As a collective game for us to enjoy

during our ongoing movement on this spinning earth.
