Curatorial Statement

Interested in high quality artists and work that has the capacity to be explored and played with beyond presentation via such things as workshops, residencies and community engaged programs. My work both independently and with Artback NT has a focus on regional audiences and dance communities. These sites have rich dance cohorts with broad aesthetics with committed and diverse audiences. The audiences and dance communities are adventurous and open when invited into two way conversation with artists practice both through language, form and movement.
