“I’ve worked with rhythm in many of my pieces… it’s a huge part of my work. When I make a piece I want it to be about something, a very clear subject or a concept, so I thought it was time to dedicate a whole piece to rhythm.”

“I believe in honesty on stage and if a dancer is having an experience on stage themselves... I actually try and get the dancers to have more an experience rather than performing the work.”

“I think the size of the company (11 dancers) creates a very relaxed working atmosphere, and it’s fun and when I have fun, I create well and I want to create, so I start to make changes and it becomes more fresh…Every time I re-set the work it becomes new because the dancers are the piece … that’s the beauty of it, I get to see the same piece but it changes because its alive.”
