ARTIST STATEMENT

As an immigrant and international artist, movement is an essential part of who I am. For me, dance is an embodied, revolutionary practice of joy and healing.

I use dance as a way to connect with communities around the world that are both similar and different from mine. I believe that our histories live in the body and that movement is a way to process the complicated relationships of culture, generational trauma, and radical joy.

Paired with my writings and research, which centers Latin American bodies and the trauma of colonization and machismo culture, I use dance as an exploration of identity and an outlet of healing. I am committed to learning and unlearning through movement, conversation, and deep listening.
