My mission as an artist is to make work that inspires curiosity. To shift assumptions, widen awareness and create possibility. I strive to find ways that dance can be a conversation, collaboration and exchange with other disciplines and communities. My work is particular in how it responds to context, from conception to presentation; it strongly considers how a performance exists within a specific space and time.

My projects have been presented by major festivals and venues around the world in theatres, galleries, museums and public contexts. I am based in Melbourne Australia and produced by Jardin Humain: Centre de Creation & Diffusion Artistique in Paris.
