My work is informed not only by my own everyday experience as an artist, an immigrant, a woman, and a researcher, but by the intention of translating personal experiences into collective ones through performance, choreography, and the production of other artistic objects. Considering movement is language, and that language reveals, conceals, and aims towards communication (whether fallible and incomplete or accurate and clear), my work explores movement as media, and media as movement.
I believe in co-imagination, togetherness and intimacy as an interdisciplinary way of creation and resistance, against contemporary practices related to precarity in dance and production in late capitalism. I reflect on co-imagination and collaborative practices (from everyday life to dance practices), horizontality as a significant tool to overcome exile, separation and to explore diaspora.
I consider the condition of non-migrants as susceptible subjects of exile from different perspectives. However, I do not want my artistic practice to be exclusively viewed through my context as an immigrant. I want my work to be able to address any issue I consider relevant, regardless of it being related to migration, exile, or identity.
