“Streamlined” explores the role of public speaking within contemporary neoliberal society through questioning the social statuses of pop- and contemporary art icons and the new generation of artists in contemporary dance and performance. As a hybrid choreographic performance of public speaking, dance and video, this work exposes different popular rhetorics from the art world that reflects nowadays conditions for art production, emerging artists continuously face with.

His artistic interests are focused on applying choreography as a tool for interpreting and researching socio-cultural phenomena, values, relations, structures and ideologies.
