CREATIVE RESEARCH

CHOREOGRAPHY

CHOREOGRAPHY

‚Äč

My current choreographic research investigates how logic can be formed out of randomness through utilizing playfulness in the choreographic process. Perhaps the outcomes of the things that we see occurring around us are complex, but maybe the laws concealed under them are quite simple. I am interested in how abstract entities are essentially irrelevant, but it is when they are placed into patterns that relationships and relevance occur.
