My current research explores the relationship between body-based (choreographic/ performance) practices and the creation of written text. The project involves the creation of three pieces on three different themes, each of which includes: a script, a performance, and a book. The works begin with a physical exploration in studio which leads to the creation of a written text. The text is then translated to a solo performance which is in turn translated to a book. My process at Les Bains will see me begin the first phase of research for the second piece in the series.
