Abstract/Artist's Statement

With collisions of cultures and ideology, there is a constant pull on me, which leads me to question who I am and where I fit in. The art that I am interested in making, or being a part of, addresses this tension around identity. I question where I fit into society as a first generation American, and where I fit in the art world as a person interested in science. I see that the arts and sciences collide, and it is this point of seemingly conflicting interests that is the heart of the art I strive to make. I want to compile notes and figure which address diaspora, queerness, race, and assimilation, and insert this research into the dance making process. I want to work with all types of people and performers, either as choreographer or as a dancer, in a collaborative and communicative fashion.
