My main and premiere desire as a choreographer is to embrace and celebrate the liveness of the body, the liveness of the dance, the liveness of the event.
The dance performance is a site where previous expectations and conceptions are breaking down into a moment of becoming, where the only time available is now.
In our post-human era, where our personal time is an asset for the capital, for invisible forces that invade our mental space, I believe in the dance performance as a space for fugitivity, for reclaiming our physical intelligence, to practice intimacy with others, to reinforce our bodies with freedom and permission to be passionate, tender, full of will, and at the same time – to disappear, to doubt, to be in-between, to remember that we are mortal.
