With my work, I hope to inspire optimism, strength and resilience in the world.
In my choreographic career, I have developed transdisciplinary performances where physicality, imagination, and concepts converge with socio-political content. I continue to acknowledge and promote the importance of feminist, LGB2TQ, BIPOC and neurodiversity spaces in the arts sector and society. In my body of work, I have focused on the resilience and representation of diverse queer people in ways that travel across the disciplines of movement, performance art, theatre, music and digital art. I am interested in dissolving binary thinking about categories of gender and sexuality while maintaining recognition of spaces that exist between and across them.
As I have continued to integrate digital technologies into my work over the years my objective has been to resist fetishizing them but to view them as tools for human expression. In my practice as a filmmaker, I often use the medium as a way to represent lived experiences in surrealistic ways with humour, text and movement.
With a foundation in occidental contemporary dance practices, nightclub dances, and ballet, my work is greatly informed by my studies of Central African dance technique at Nyata Nyata school of dance (2011-2019), and my academic research associated with the Graduate Diploma program in Communication Studies at Concordia University (2017-2018).
