Mission

My mission is to examine, practice, and advocate for performance as a political act of critical cultural reflection and reimagination, tackling the complex institutional social structures straining the undocumented immigrant experience in, across, and beyond La Frontera.

By producing non-traditional, participatory and intimate performances, I utilize ethnographic, migratory, choreographic, and site-specific methods to achieve a crafted aesthetic for a conceptual engagement of “sweat citizenships.” This process invites participating in the muddled and transforming migrant identity and sense of (un)belonging.
