About Me (human/individual)/interests, work..short bio/ THis is the most important. It is the only way to know that you are not a SPAMBOT!Be generous!
In my work, the body is form. Corporeal improvisation is the technique to provoke, access, identify and make use of a particular kind of concentration and other states of awareness and integration. These in turn when practiced often become knowledge and tools not only for gusty movement but also for conscious living. I am interested in revealing processes -- which are often rich in experiences and opportunities -- beyond what is supposed "to be" in both performance and in life. I am interested in direct and immediate experience. I am interested in the ambiguous and complexity of witnessing a body making decisions, and the humanity present in these negotiations. I am interested in relating in new ways and how these relationships create a new set of rules. This is the intent of the PISO project: interactivity that makes us ponder and challenge the given set of rules and structures that we move in as artists and as humans. Contrary to the experience of the-body-as-object, the live body reveals closeness and vulnerability, which can place us in situations that we might not want to face. Additionally, the practice of decision-making -- both revealed and discussed -- offers tools that are conducive to thinking through possibilities.
