I am an interdisciplinary performing artist and teacher.
 My own performance pieces fall into place through sincerity, responsiveness, tempo and tone

I constantly renew and review my work and relate it to other artists of my trade

I am inspired by all the art forms and integrate them into my theatrical productions

Collaboration with artists in  other art forms transforms my work, taking me to new places I would never have thought of going alone

I like experimenting with theatrical traditions so theater is brought out of a conventional context and presented in a personal and relevant way.

I love singing and improvising with musicians where poetic stories seem to come out of nowhere and make perfect poetic sense

Each new artistic project is an incentive to keep moving on.
