My research-based performance practice is inspired by the politics of ecofeminism within which I currently explore obsession, materialistic desire as sexual desire and the (female) body as the consumer and the consumed. With work that falls between durational performance, live art, and dance, I blur the lines between reality and fantasy by creating ‘living’ images of everyday actions with an air of ridiculousness (for instance, giving birth to a pair of shoes). My choreographies explore the possibilities and limits of stillness, pose and tableau in non-theatrical performance spaces. Through repetition and a non-narrative structure, it is an ongoing investigation on how the body and action converse with witnesses, objects and space.
