“It all comes down to the stories we tell (ourselves).”
I am a movement-and-word artist and activist, an educator, and researcher. My work-ing is meant to be encouraging of the continual re-form-ing in and of the emergent field of queer critical practice.
My interest in dancing concerns the capacity of the medium to conduct, analyse, and reflect upon (the value of) inter-personal communication conducted in the field of the non-verbal, and so challenge the assumed value of non-verbal communication in the Global West.
I think that the practices I am developing are first and foremost embodied practices which necessarily makes them liberatory practices which necessarily makes them emergent practices in as much as working with the body, creating space for the body–or: body–necessitates critical observation and the re-thinking of the existing structures that currently create spaces for bodies.

What you see here now is evidence of how far I’ve gotten in deciding how to present myself to the world. What you may be able to see here (over time) is how many times I’ve changed my mind regarding. Classification is particularly challenging. In part because I don’t get to be in control of your capacity to perceive the value or, indeed, that you get to perceive the value that I think I’m communicating in and with my presentation.
