"There were quiet and lonely moments: a woman eating from a paper bag, a man reading aloud as he penned a mediocre letter about writing a mediocre letter. He placed a chair before a doorway, suggestive of an impending hanging, but instead played a verbal solitaire: the game of knock, knock played alone."
Michele Boylan - The Program

I am fascinated with performance that is time, site and performer specific
I have a desire to make work that is meaningful
that has importance within the place it is situated
dance, performance, art - this isn't cancer research
so we need to make it important
to re create our societies
to believe that things are important, vital, meaningful
capitalism has asked us to segregate, to isolate, to dislocate
I have a desire to create performances that needs to be experienced - to be lived
I desire to install: beauty, sensation, violence, whisperings

I desire art that is life
and not fashion
