“I am a multidisciplinary dance artist currently focusing on researching my choreographical practice as an independent choreographer, working at the intersection between technology, body and film, exploring the boundaries of new media and dance. My work is an investigation and translation of my experiences through movement and choreography, experiencing creation from as many different angles as possible, crossing borders, searching for new spaces, forms, sounds, movement and opportunity for the expression of a creative freedom.”
