Covered&Coated

2018

covered&coated is a physical representation of the marks an individual leaves on the world; both the positive and negative impacts one person can create. The work attempts to demonstrate the way humans brush over or cover imperfections, allowing only the pragmatic to be seen and sharing the more favourable qualities and characteristics.

Kunzite

2017

Kunzite explores the physicality of being and doing things for the first time. What if you woke up one day and your senses had reverted to the way they were as an infant while, your mind remained the same? You had all knowledge but your senses lagged. The challenge would to reintegrate the senses with the advanced cognitive abilities.

Two Truths and a  Lie

 

2017

Two Truths and a Lie deals with the facts and theories that a person has been taught to believe. This piece came out of a collaborative process with the performers. We questioned how a fact can be proven as true and through an infinite regress we debated the uncertainty of truths.

again, again, again.

 2016

Our natural tendencies lie in our obligation to build, structure and grow. We only notice the things we lack; in ourselves once they have been recognized. Once impacted, it is our job to deconstruct, rebuild and create ourselves to beauty again.

carried away

have you ever stood on a beach alone, took a deep breathe and admired the waves? this meditative video sees the waves and the stories they bring. what washes ashore and whatever the water carries away leaves a distance between your feet and the water.

Cutting Glue

2017

What is beauty? How do we see things as beautiful or perfection? Do I have obligations to abide by as a cisgendered queer female? Can I break them?

Cutting Glue explores the advertisement of beauty in an unconditional fashion. Seduction and distortion compliment themselves in this contemporary movement based film.

SHE//WE

2017

Gone back into the vault. Found your voice again. I remembered. We sound happy. I stayed in bed all day. It was a cold night. Even for the summer. Even for the winter. We laughed for no good reason. This had no good reason.

BLOOM4YOU

2017 

BLOOM 4 you - The deconstruction of a relationship which was solely based on sexual behaviour, mistreatment and lack of communication. We follow the side of the story where the noise was most disrupted. Are we attached to fabrication? The illusion? Or are we blinded by it and only realize it once it is too late.
