Bio
I am a contemporary dance artist and anthropologist and writer. I have performed contemporary dance in Canada for over 30 years. I have performed with True North Performance, Evelyn Roth Moving Sculptures, Metropolis Dance Co, Pacific Motion Dance Co. I have largely worked on environmental dance themes over the past three decades, emphasizing the centrality of landscape, the spatiality of the lived body and the nature of figure/ground relationships. Both individually and collectively, I have sought to explore potentials of performance in environmental settings, in nature, rivers, forest, ocean etc. emphasizing the necessary and unbroken integration between humans and land and water. Currently I continue working on these themes with Evelyn Roth Moving Sculptures and as an independent. I also explored themes of an environment nature with True North Performance between 2011 and 2015.
I am proud to have St'at'imc ancestry and heritage through one of my grandmothers.
