Los Angeles, CA
About

I make performances and situations and sometimes other things like films and writing (and garage band remixes) on my own and in collaboration with other artists and other people. I’m informed by contemplating psycho-spiritual existence, spending as much time as possible in the woods and various bodies of water, moving my body/mind around empty rooms for hours on end, and thinking a lot about my role as a citizen in the various large and small, urban and rural communities of which I am a permanent or temporary member. Paying attention, slowing down, speeding up, subverting my and others’ conditioning, and creating temporary, collaborative and queer communities are all important parts of my process, practice, and events. Generally my projects combine elements of conceptual practice with post-modern dance and take place in a wide-range of important and unimportant theaters, galleries, warehouses, and outdoor public spaces.
