Video artist and choreographer
I am intrigued by the many ways people interact and communicate to each other through words and body language. I am choreographing movements for contemporary dancers to construct situations that emphasise the subjectivity of perception, the expression of the body, as well as conflict between people. After an experimental process of play and improvisation, I am filming this choreography of movements with a mobile camera that seems to be part of the dance. A cacophony of different language or hyper real sounds form the soundtrack.
