Director Statement

In film as in performance, I have always been attracted to non-linear, surreal universes where abstract images, concepts and narratives dress and adorn the human form. The characters I create are non-stereotypical, captive of their psyche and often looking for a missing part. They interchange feelings, personas and experiences, threading multiple perspectives into one.

My latest practice involves collaborating with choreographers, actors and performance artists that seek non-conventional, distorted narratives and immersive imagery to entice audiences to connect instinctively.
