Presenting the contradictory ways in which my mind operates, Of Two Minds serves as a reflection on how we struggle to apprehend the world around us when our thoughts and actions are governed by automaticity. The choreography ultimately comments on how an overload of information prevents full sensory experiences and limits the potential to be present in the current moment. Through public presentation of the choreographic work, I invite viewers to engage with the content and the space they are inhabiting—to use their apprehending mind as a result.
