My Current Research
The dancing body lies at the heart of my praxis. I believe that it is through a phenomenologically experienced encounter with light that a cross fertilization between theories of the body in space and a sensorial motivated practice may render new knowledge or insights. My investigations focus on the dancing body’s processes-in-practice, which in turn acknowledge the transformative thresholds uniquely available in the sensory perception of the choreographing body in relation to light. Key to my thinking and emerging philosophy-through-practice approach, is that light is to be treated as a material force with palpable qualities, as Merleau–Ponty suggests “it is best to think of light as an action by contact” (1964:131).
