Artistic Statement

What can theatre learn from a fox or a river?

What happens when we host potlatches and make things from urgencies whispered over broken bread? What precipitates when we create events inspired by and beholden to the weather? What stories are the ghosts haunting us with? What unlikely collaborations—across disciplines, abilities, space, ideologies, and species—can we bridge to best shake our bodies? What breaks loose when the audience sings a work song, or a hymn, or a chant, or beats a drum alongside the other people surrounding the vibrating ground?

Deeply occupied by the reciprocation between performance and the natural world, I am in search of a more compassionate, vital, full-body-activating kind of theatre.
