My work is collaborative, conceptual, multi-voiced, intergenerational, intercultural, transformative, explores abstracted to literal narratives. It spans ancestral to futurity, holding past, present and future in one space, experience, and body. It involves questioning, listening, responding, challenging myself to journey into new physical, mental and spiritual territory. How free am I to think, move and perform and inhabit space? How can I perform memories stored in tissues, blood and bones?
