my bio

Born in 1994 in Vermont (USA) and raised in France, I am a MFA2 student at Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux- Arts de Paris, in the studio of the Choreographer Emmanuelle Huynh.
After two years dancing and thinking in New York from 2014 to 2016, I started to show performances and video work in galeries, museums, clubs, theaters, in solo and group projects (Comédie de Caen, Kanal Centre Pompidou Bruxelles, Doc!, Fondation Thalie, Sogetsu Plaza Tokyo, AA Art Studio Shanghai, Point Éphémère, Silencio). Since 2016, I have been interpret for different choreographers, performers and artists, amongts which Yair Barelli, Jennifer Lacey, Madison Bycroft, Ingri Fidskal, Jocelyn Cottencin, Nuno Bizarro, et Emmanuelle Huynh.

I also graduated from Sciences Po Paris in 2018, where I completed a masters’ thesis in political ecology entitled “Dance, witches and capitalism.” Preoccupied by the environmental crisis, and by the damages caused by the capitalist system, my performances and movies are attempts to share an experience of humans’ relationship to nonhuman worlds. I investigate how movement and dance can inspire us to transform and heal our relationship to the planet and to ourselves. I thread links between ancestral practices concerning healing, non-human modes of action, and data from the capitalist system. This enables me to create performances, that make us laugh and think. I am also a trained herbalist, and Japanese Yoga teacher, and I use this knowledge in my work.
