When it comes to improvising and creating I love to work with strong imagery and by delving into the imagination.
I feel that by harnessing our inner child, we can truly be free to create and express our deepest desires and feelings to the people around us. I like to use existing dance techniques as tools for creating and try to allow abstract impulses to take over and create something more unique and fun.
During creative processes I prefer to use the “yes and..” method so as to try and keep things as light and judgement free as possible, which is always a challenge working by yourself!
In this piece I am exploring the theme of mental health and more specifically my experience with anxiety and how I like search for distractions as moments of temporary relief. By using my personal experience I am able to research how my inner narrative can be transformed into a physical movement language.
As anxiety can be a rather heavy subject to deal with, it was nice to find lighter moments that could represent the moments of relief and happiness that one may experience during a particularly tough period of time.
