'The thing is, I don’t want to say anything. Nothing. I don’t want to say a damn thing. I want a void, a pause, space, transitions within transitions. All the words, all the emotions, all the ups, all the downs, all the victories, all the battles, all the days, all the nights….there’s nothing to say. It’s what’s not said…It’s what can’t be said…only felt. And only a sliver of what is felt can really be seen….and I hope through this residency I can bring that inspiring sliver of everything and nothing to myself and the community.
'I just want my body and my mind and my spirit to have the freedom to seek a new beginning. I want myself and my collaborators to relish in the transition within the transition….To really sit deep inside that creative ignition time and allow the light to guide us. I want to capture that moment where we slowly come back to ourselves after a hard year, an exhausting day, a daunting month. Nothingness. I want to sit and stand and laugh and cry in nothingness. Where there is nothing to be anticipated. Nothing to be expected. Nothing to declare. Nothing to say. I want and want to give others the invitation to rekindle our own flame — a silent resolve to stand tall; the chance to start anew; the opportunity to be fully present, fully aware, fully human.
'In this journey, I am seeking new beginnings. In ourselves, in myself, in others, in my art. I hope to experiment with stillness, the depth of simplicity, the courage to rise after falling. I will continue to experiment with femininity and beauty and the most authentic embodiment of individuality. I will ask the community to join me in this chance and moment in time and space to slowly come back to ourselves. Amidst the chaos and anxious state of the world, where can we discover the pause and rediscover real presence? This performance collision is to new starts, new stages, new chapters, new states of mind….a new day…a new light….a new beginning.'
