RESEARCH

Research Interests: Dance and Dance Studies, Performance Studies, Visual Culture, Critical Race Theory, Critical Whiteness Studies, Feminist Theory, and Dance History, Somato-Politics.

My current research investigates the experiential body as a liberatory landscape for anticolonial and anticapitalist self-determination and love. I am interested in individually and anatomically informed movement patterning for both function and grace, and the capacity therein for liveness.

In April of 2018 I completed my MA in Contemporary Arts Studies at SFU’s School of Contemporary Arts. My object of study was an analysis and critique of white supremacy in contemporary dance, which I researched and wrote under the guidance of my brilliant supervisors, Dr. Henry Daniels, Dr. Denise Oleksijczuk, and Dr. Laura U. Marks.
