SYNOPSIS

What are sex and the sexual/sensual body? This work offers the audience empathic experiences of the tactile and aural sensation with the sensual choreography of the body and skin, re-imagining and re-defining human sexuality. What is dance? How can it be captured and appreciated in a different way?
Our body is a sexual organ.
Our body is our sex.

Director Statement:
The fundamental inspiration for my work is love, its beauty and complexity, while thematically, my work revolves around questions of gender, sexuality, sex, and race. I draw from the different vocabularies of street, modern, and contemporary dance and movement. Further, as an interdisciplinary artist, I turn to the tools offered by multiple media to enrich and deepen my works. I create artwork as a process for healing and questioning. Setting out to disrupt, I always want to create something different from what people have seen before by challenging social norms and our perceptions of them.
My process as an artist and creator is that I always wait to be inspired in/by life. First I see one thing, I reflect on it, gather and accumulate information, and then I start to address it. I need to ensure my creative impulses and passions have a truth to them and that I have enough understanding, courage, and vocabulary to address the questions raised. Then I embark on finding the right themes, symbols, techniques, forms, and tones for the works. I am always looking for new and innovative elements. I draw on theory from academic and non-academic works and think hard. I expect myself to be not only an artist but also a thinker.
The ideology of my works is ""Family-unfriendly.""
