RESEARCH STATEMENT

I’m trained in the practice of theatre-making. That creative work has been strengthened, expanded, exploded, deepened, interrogated, and complicated by performance studies and performance theory. What has been a traditional divide between theory and praxis I see as a charged space, one which when crossed, disrupted, charted or navigated activates both endeavors. In my research and creative work, I explore how bodies create place from space; how place and space shape the bodies that interact and perform there. How through and because of performance we can understand “there” differently. Investigations of gender, race, de-colonization, and post-coloniality fuel my artistic and scholarly practice.
