We know that words like “choreographer” and “artist” often contain multitudes — and that much of what you do takes place out of the spotlight. Can you help us introduce you?

You spent a lot of time in this latest project focusing on the “in-between”. What is it about that place, or that idea, that resonates so deeply with you?

Even from the outside, we can see there’s a persistent lack of representation within the arts. We’re curious to hear more about your perspective on that from inside the creative world…

Your latest project ends on an incredibly hopeful note, with the dancers creating their own rhythm together. Does this speak to your vision for the future, and if so, in what ways?

Much of your earlier work focused on sadness and hopelessness. Was this representative of a season in your life outside of dance — and, if so, would you be willing to share a bit about that with us?
