I dance more than I do anything else. With music, expressing myself through movement has become an essential part of my daily life. I dance to understand and to make sense.
In dance, I look for the meaning of now: the meaning that comes from the people around and the space that surrounds us. I make dances to make spaces where people can be together.
Sometimes the dance creates the space. Sometimes I create the space so I can dance in it.
As a part of my practice, I make scrapbooks and daily drawings. I cut out pictures from magazines, collect texts and photographs (as well as postcards) as memories, markers of time and stick them in a notebook. I draw patterns on newsprint paper and on sticky notes. I write poems.
I look for the hidden story within objects. I bring together the things which once were separated. I create sensations, reconstruct memories with a compilation of objects, smells and songs. This compilation becomes a space for dance. The anxiety of time passing brings together the fear of loss. I dance to find and re-find; to not to lose.
I name my work under two concepts: creative intimacy and queer as process. Intimacy which develops through creative interactions between artists, is what I value the most. I work collaboratively and take queer paths along an interdisciplinary process. I make choices according to what the bodies, the space, and the time need; instead of forcing a predetermined and outcome-focused strategies. The form of my work varies depending on with whom and when I am creating. Each final shape is always “subject to change.”
I am inspired by music, philosophy, poetry, language, sculpture, painting and movie scenes. I windsurf, play multiple instruments, and sing the songs Dolores O’Riordan wrote.
