I am a queer settler, a second generation working-class Canadian. I work speculatively, aiming for non-repeatabiliy, creating oddly formed moves and energetic flows to connect abstracted impulses to sublimated images. I let speech affect movement and movement affect speech—hypothetically articulating injuries that were entrenched in states of dissociation and hidden in forms of respectable behaviour. I describe this as ‘post-clown’ ‘anti-objective’ work. Taking my physical practice into performance layers on inter-relational complications, as I notice how my body responds while being seen by others. This is my best attempt to understand the strangeness of the world.
