me, mine, more… was created in response to my curiosities around social perception. I am interested in the way individuals perceive one another in different social encounters and situations. The solo is meant to reveal my feelings associated with misunderstandings; a part of social perception.

Our natural tendencies lie in our obligation to build, structure and grow. We only notice the things we lack; in ourselves once they have been recognized. Once impacted, it is our job to deconstruct, rebuild and create ourselves to beauty again.

Kunzite explores the physicality of being and doing things for the first time. What if you woke up one day and your senses had reverted to the way they were as an infant while, your mind remained the same? You had all knowledge but your senses lagged.

Two Truths and a Lie deals with the facts and theories that a person has been taught to believe. This piece came out of a collaborative process with the performers. We questioned how a fact can be proven as true. Through infinite regress, we debated the uncertainty of truths.
