I’m a shooting star leaping through the skies, like a tiger defying the laws of gravity. Try to imagine an ambush of tigers doing this with me, and you’re one of them ... now we’re getting somewhere.
I want to explore how much better life would be if we all danced more, and whether social barriers can be bridged by dancing together in a gallery, a club, at home in the lounge room, or in other public spaces. Dance exists universally, everyone has a version, but no one is right or wrong. At its core, my practice is about dissolving social alienation, altering relationships with those around me, and prospecting opportunities for everyday behavioural change.
Self revolution is the only meaningful type to me. Not sure you agree? Shall we dance?
