PYLON II 60 mins //Premiered October 21st, 2016 at King Street Station in Seattle PII incorporates live surveillance feeds to examine questions of observation and consent. Through a developmental arc, the work explores themes of systematic fear and control placed on human bodies operating within a quagmire of technological systems essential to modern society (i.e. surveillance, the internet, architectural design).

FRAGMENT SAPIEN 30 mins //Premiered August 26th, 2016 at Velocity Dance Center This work pieces together many abstract threads, from complex choreography to menial tasks. How many different ways can we look at what makes up a human? Shape, form, movement, text, science, and character are used as bridges into building a web of a narrative. 13 sketches are glued back-to-back, putting an absurd microscope to the reality that our identities are fluid and shaped by context.

PYLON I 2 hour installation // Premiered February 20th, 2016 at Seattle Art Museum's PACCAR Pavilion PI is concerned with the complex and muddled relationship between oppressive structures and human bodies; between communal pressure and self-fulfillment, between surveillance and privacy, between unyielding architecture and fragile flesh. This is an investigation of watching and individuation - about how we variously craft and perform our identities in different contexts depending on the various types of observation we perceive.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF BEING 20 mins //Premiered January 30th, 2015 at Velocity Dance Center The Architecture of Being deals with relationships. How does a human relate to a mass of people, to architecture, to space, and to self? This work utilizes a cast of 17 performers. The choreography of the mass uses large formations to open, close, and shift the space. These formations build a human architecture that is layered with the soloists’ material navigating through it. The piece serves as a reflection on the idea of being and evokes a dynamic flow of emotional states. After an accumulation of harsh images, what is found beneath it all is a striking moment of forgiveness.

THREE PERSPECTIVES IN ONE SPACE 20 mins //Premiered June 14th, 2014 at On the Boards Three perspectives in one space projects the audience into a world of examining the body as architecture, beginning with the solitary presence of an angular gigantic structure, designed by Seattle-based architect Cameron Irwin. The abstract exoskeleton towers above the three performers, who serve as moving counterpoints to the stationary structure. The work experiments with the shedding of human characteristics in order to shift the body into sculptural states.
