Work

Of Mud and Dust

Talking much about oneself can also be a tactic to conceal oneself.

Of Mud and Dust is a physical dialogue regarding the universal innate being.

In every aspect of our lives, we ask:

How am I valued?
What is my worth?

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves.” Leo Tolstoy

Of Mud and Dust is both revealing and thoughtful. As wet clay dries and brittle mud flakes away to the rhythm of breathing, and her body’s organic movement reveals the innocence of our skin, awareness is brought to its primitive form.
