To be alive and separate are antithetical notions- if we truly understood the depth of our interconnection, how much more respect would we give to our oceans, skies and forests?
-Mark Coleman, “Awake in the Wild”
In moments of clarity we remember our interconnectivity: we are part of the earth and it is a part of us. The point of “clever fauna” (an umbrella term for my dance projects and films) is to engage with this idea from an artistic standpoint; to create meaningful and developed work that explores our essence as creatures and inhabitants.
Since completing my pre-professional training in contemporary dance at Simon Fraser University in 2010, I feel fortunate to have worked for/with many accomplished artists in Vancouver, and to continue to train extensively in movement and other artistic practices.
This particular site is geared towards my own choreographic work and research; and projects that expand into the community as a whole.
