Artist Statement

Christopher poses sideways in a self-portrait with the jaw of a shark on his head like a mask. The sharp teeth hold the bone against his body.

I am a Visually Impaired Choreographer interested in expanding Audio Description as an artistic medium. My practice has a creative and experimental approach, centering my low vision experience. I draw on different writing, vocal, and movement based styles across media, including film, installation, and dance to build a multi-sensory identity based performance.  My voice highlights my cultural, disability and gender identities that are audible in my speech, accent, word choice and bilingualism.
