BIRTH PLACE: New Plymouth, New Zealand
WHAT AGE DID YOU START DANCING? ‘I started dancing at age 5.’
WHAT ARE YOU INSPIRED BY? ‘For me, the continual revealing of the self, all parts of that, re-meeting who I am over and over each time I move, that is exciting. This opens up the constant exploration of how to connect wholly with every instant, to connect to further to self and through that connecting to others.'
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT CONTEMPORARY DANCE? 'I love to move and I love to share the experience of people inhabiting their bodies. Dance is so alive for me and a less finite form of communicating and there’s something really attractive about that.’
