🐆 Dancing 🍋 Writing ✨ Singing 🧜♀️ Music 🥁 Choreographer🌱Teaching 🖤 Tao 🐍 Cyborg 💫 Ecosystems 🌈 Interconnections 🕸
Interested in energy, vibrations and interconnection, I am working with text, dance, music and performance. My practice resides within a poetic theatre of consciousness and myth, especially through the body (states, movement, relations) and the voice (spoken word, lyrics, sound). A trans-disciplinary encompassing, stretching and relating, following tensions, curiosities and desires; all that resides within and without. Inner reaches of outer space.
I deal with our contemporary situation, asking questions about the challenges we face, and using fictive imagination so as to deal with the present and create possibilities.
I create work, mostly within collaborations: Brave (K)new R/Wave research project + creation (2019/20), soul-scapes (2018) in collaboration with Catherien Elsen, beat’n’shine (May 2013-May 2014) in collaboration with Nuno Brito within a one year Boost program through Trois C-L, consisting of 8 residencies within Europe, soulsongdances (2013), Two people coming together (2009), I’ll crane for you (2008), a Deborah Hay solo adaptation, Back to the roots with Jimy (2008), it (instead of twenty-one-words) (2006), Wholly (2003)
