My belief is that every action is a choreographic act and that all things material and immaterial have a consciousness to them. If we erode the materiality of things, including our bodies, we soon begin to see that we are constituted of the same stardust-matter. Fires coalesce into black and gray ash, water erodes the fortress of stones into molecular gems, wind aids with cross-pollination; everything in a constant state of perpetual dissolution from one state to another. Energy simply knows how, when, and where to pass through. These truths give me hope that choreographic kinetics are a valuable tool for reconfiguring our world. It is towards and through play, rigorous attention, paradoxical encounters, and engendering alternative structures of intimacy that my work unfolds.

Socially engaged praxis as the bridge between the work that occurs in and outside of studio spaces and considers potential and alternative forms of transmission including: think-tanks, books, pop-up installations, secret performances no one gets to see, secret performances for someone who isn’t in the room, secret performances for one person only, porn short-films, lectures, workshops, platicas, parades y mucho mucho mas.
