performance

I have several outlets for creating performance. With Troika Ranch I make large scale computer-driven live works for the stage. As a solo artist I have been making solos and group works for the informal setting of my own home, studio and yard in my Salon du Garage series. I travel nationally and internationally to create new works for students, some are media intensive others are not. I still call myself a choreographer even though there are a myriad names for the kind of thing I do, i.e. performance, live art, dance theater, hybrid, multimedia, etc. The body is my primary expressive tool. I believe that dance always resonates with people on the subconscious level that we all have a body that moves in some degree. Everyone can relate to that base level message of the form, this phenomonology. I sometimes layer other intellectual ideas on top of that base, I sometimes do not. I am currently most interested in making performance works that integrate audience on various levels and where the enactment of the performance, by both audience and performer, is the primary content and message of the work.
