‘My work, both as a creative artist and as a programme curator, attempts to embrace and bring into light the invisible complexity of the human being.
Whether I am creating a piece with professional dancers, young dancers, or people from local communities, my project is always the same: building a space where individuals can embrace and express their contradictions as a form of richness, something that dance can do particularly well. This is in itself a political statement that invites to accept the diversity and complexity among and within all human beings.
Each dancer brings to life a singular, embodied impression of reality, filtered through their perceptions, life experience, and an acutely tuned attention to the relationship between thought process and physical experience.
What matters most to me is the ability to experience, uncover and share, in the purest possible way, the embodied expression of our human nature, embedded as it is in a complex world of physical realities, relationships, thought processes, history and contradictions.
We aim to offer participants and spectators opportunities to see, feel, accept and enjoy the simple pleasure of that singularity, and the essentially unfathomable mystery of alterity.’
