Each time I’ve attempted to divide my research into categories of activity, I’ve discovered more about the fundamental connections between those categories. The boundaries between my roles as an improvisational artist, performer, choreographer, teacher, and scholar are fluid. My work in the field and in the classroom both center on creative research activated by critical engagement with embodied practices. As an artist, my scholarly work serves as a companion to my primary modes of research. My scholarly papers put physical practice at the center and extend outward to question and to contextualize those practices in theoretical and historical terms and turn an analytical lens to practices that I know intimately and subjectively. This page includes abstracts for scholarly papers that I have been published or delivered at conferences.
