dc.description.abstractIt is my ambition, through art, to produce a drama of high emotions, where dancers are more icons than individuals. Integral in the depiction of this drama is the idea of Dionysiac celebration. The main concern of such celebrations is a breakdown of all ties of social rules and regulations. The Dionysiac tradition was to restore man to Nature and release man from his ego -- the dance becomes then the medium through which my icons celebrate a release in appearances. Creating icons rather than individuals releases me from the bonds of appearances in the everyday world. I believe this release from appearances lets me stand as a close and willing observer, and as an observer I am able to interpret and reflect on the processes that train me for art and life.
