Movement is my first language. The act of moving - of being in motion - streams of movement and pauses - informs the way we touch the world.
A movement can be specific, can be controlled, movement is also untamed, potent, fierce, omnipresent. It is the music of the universe: the way all matter is expressing itself - the way we are able to express ourselves into the world.
Movement inhabits the stillness just as stillness is at the heart of movement. It is a way to return, a pathway back to preverbal us.
I find joy and depth in moving. I find solutions, I dissolve, I recreate. The body can never lie and so it creates itself out of itself. Moving as I want without judgment or thought is the greatest exploration of all and it brings me joy, groundedness, balance.
