What began as play, transformed into an experiment with non-verbal communication. I asked myself what many have asked before, what is possible to understand through movement alone?

This project was inspired by the people and countryside of Finland during my time at the Arteles Artist Residency Program. All of the filming, music, and crafting was done during that time (January 2016).

Director Statement

My body is my temple, and an amazing vehicle with which to roam around this beautiful, crazy, bizarre, ridiculous, inspiring world. Inside the history that I have with my body, I can feel that the more I have access to my own form, the more that I feel connected to all other forms. What are these invisible ties that we have to each other and the Earth? Of what is the body made? The ways in which we can connect are endless; the methods many. And for me, the energetic body is an internal/external landscape of information just waiting to be discovered. As an active dance artist and yoga teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is my wish to continue to dance through my life, unveiling her mysteries through the landscape of bodies, and along the way work to encourage other human spirits to come into contact with their own unique form of expression, truth, and sense of inter-connectivity.
