With time, I have simplified my vocabulary to such a point that in 0101, there is almost nothing left to see. I wanted to see only that which is choreographic. I removed dance and worked from the idea of choreography without space. I wasnt aiming to create a minimalist dance but obviously, working on movement material was imperative. I essentially worked with quantities of time, space and movement. This lead me to write choreographic scores.
