I have a background in performance and choreography, making site-specific and interdisciplinary movement art for theaters, gallery spaces, festivals, urban locations, and places in nature. One of my main interests has been to dismantle the traditional hierarchies and power relationships between choreographer and dancer, performer and audience, teacher and student. In my work, I often focused on deep listening practices to counter the spectacle and dominance of visual culture. I was committed to innovative and unconventional movement research, deconstructing and queering coded dance norms.
For several years, I taught movement research and composition at the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam and at the International Theatre Workshop of NYU Tisch School of the Arts. I mentored students in their artistic process and facilitated immersive workshops, synthesizing conceptual art and embodied movement practices.
At this moment in time, I mostly delight in random kitchen clubbing and inter-species dance parties with cats.
