Dancer Choreographer & Researcher.
I speak about arts and culture as a driving force for social change
My interest is questioning the myths around humanity, interpreting stories of the world and narrating stories of my ancestry.
My Artistic Study
I put emphasis on driving the emotional chemistry of my dance movements; my audience should experience the emotions such as Fear, love, sorrow, hope, or tension if that is the feeling intended for the dance piece.
My Research & Philosophy
I found passion in exploring humanity and I apply all my skills and research to pronounce the untold stories. As a dancer/Choreographer, I have the power to express my feelings with every cell of the body. I narrate stories only with emotions and movement! I think of the body as a large museum filled with information of varying generations, History and Future instincts. I feel a lot of experiences, feelings, beliefs, and realities that only the body can communicate. Things that the spoken languish don’t always have words to explain or where it is too difficult to talk about them out loud..
My Creation Embryo
My choreographic identity is creating emotions and intentional body movements. My interest is questioning the myths around humanity, interpreting stories of the world and narrating stories of my ancestry. My choreography starts right from the installations, to the props, costumes, sound, and emotions to movement..
Dance and Humanity
My work is mostly created to address social issues. From gender politics, climate change, environmental justice, and human rights. People would easily dissolve information that gave them chance to think than one that gives them direct answers. I explore the issues in our world, the realities of life and give them a new narrative. Mirror them to the people and trigger them to think out loud.
