Tap dancer | Choreographer | Connector
Everything that lives needs to move and have the space to do it.
While in Residency:
This year I have received an artist grant from the Amsterdam Art Fund which enables me to travel and exchange with other artists. In the course of this grant I have lived, worked and studied in Denmark, Poland and Portugal, and am now planning trips to Bali and Cuba. And now I am coming to New Orleans.
While in New Orleans I will be setting up artist exchanges with local individuals that work in theatre, dance and music. The exchanges can be artistic, but can also be an exchange of thoughts and experiences (artistic, social and economical experiences) around art projects connected to social change, community building or personal artistic biography.
I will be screening my short films and combining that with a tap performance including local musicians / dancers. I am interested to work with any musicians, but especially in those that find a distinctly personal approach to their work.
