My exploration of the body is based on temporal migrations of the domestic identity into the public sphere. These migrations move the individualistic corporeal language to subjectively (and liberally) move or respond to it's placement in the space: which is otherwise restricted by the material disrupting the space, memory or histories that inhabit the shared space and inanimate architectural objects that police our every decision, our every move and every conversation shared within (public) collective spaces. As I step in and out of these public spaces, I realize that my gestures are a temporary, non-linear response that activate/s the space/s which exist between the materialized, the architectural, the regulated which then makes visible the codes of conduct, the boundaries, the edges, the structures and physical bodies occupying the space which rightly belongs to the native identity and native land. All five senses (and the senses we fail to recognize beyond the ones discovered) are stimulated and organized in ways to help one better understand how to fit in the human ecology, institutions and politicized territories. I then commence to employ the body within the space by removing the years of institutionalized training of dance which I have practiced. Alternatively, I investigate performance, dance and choreography from gestural expressions, repetition, athleticism, endurance and duration.
