Statement

Christopher is a dancer. His work focuses on the physical body in space and attempts to allow opportunity for audience to stare into bones and flesh, the exertion of bodies and the bodies of stillness. He views his work as attempts to recreate a reverie, not only for himself but for the audience as well.
