My choreography encompasses ethnography, memoir, and observations of my cross-cultural identifiers. Comprised of dance, language and timing, my performances inspire algorithmic imagery wherein I intersect urbanity with suburbia, the countryside and the imaginary plane. Cadence is the base relation in my work where humor confronts sadness, gravity weighs levity, timing against improvisation. Factual, humorous and grave observations depict my herstorical frame from where I’m in search of the spiritual, in observation of the physical, and in awe of the artificial. My research has looked to Cumbia, AIDS, New York, Los Angeles, Mexico, Detroit, vampires and Yugoslavia as sounding boards. As a choreographer, performer and writer, I generate cartographic visions of performance.
