🍒 🧜♀️🐞Co-creating ☀️Inner reaches of outer space 🌑 Dancing✨Performance art 🥁 Singing ⚡️ Choreographer 🍋 🌈 🖤💫 Humanitarianenvironmentalist 🐆
I am a performer and choreographer working within the interconnection between text, dance, music and performance art. My practice resides within a poetic theatre of consciousness and myth, especially through the body and the voice, using language, singing and movement. All that resides within and without. Inner reaches of outer space.
I deals with our contemporary situation, asking questions about the challenges humanity faces, and using fictive imagination so as to deal with the present and create possibilities.
My work’s intentions are multi-sensorial, witty and aesthetical experiences in the service of a global community in synthesis and reverence for all, the earth and the cosmos. A celebratious ceremony.
