"My creative work is the body: how it moves and how it feels. Dance is a vehicle for communication, and I am invested in creating work that responds to the environments and cultural climates that surround me. As a woman, I feel driven to question the social and cultural roles of body, gender, identity, and sexuality. In this way, my creative process encourages me to to develop compassion for beliefs outside of my own. In the studio I want the act of creation to feel like an act of survival, tempting the innate intelligence that lives within the body to be realized." - Kyle Georgina Marsh
