How long have you had your business?
How did you get started?

Who or what inspires your work?
Movement is my form of creative expression: movement facilitates my need to feel present, limitless and vulnerable. I use the body as an endless canvas – to discover and uncover through abstract and gesticular shaping.
I create contemporary Physical Theatre. The main influences on my body of work arise from research into the affects of imposing sociological and political structures on the masses’. I seek to construct a thought provoking, cinematic experience for theatre goers; I do this by combining thematic and multi-disciplinary approaches. I collaborate with theatre and music professionals to build a work that is originally devised and driven by relevant socio-political topics. I am adamant about layering my work with multiple perspectives, because this creates a captivating interplay between simplicity and complexity.
What do you dream for your business in the future?
My dream is that Project InTandem can continue to provide opportunities that develop emerging performers and choreographers in Calgary. I hope this opportunity encourages emerging artists to create more opportunities in Calgary.
What’s your favourite social media platform and why?
Instagram and posting a video on Facebook because you can reach a wider audeinvce range.
How do you pick yourself up when things go wrong?
I usually relax for a couple hours with a double bath and a movie to reenergize my spirit.
What’s one thing no one knows about you?
That one day I want to study Yoga in India.
If you could have any super power what would it be?
I would love to be able to fly.
I love the wind blowing in my hair and I can imagine how free it would make me feel.
