She is invested in intertwining movement and writing, inviting contact improvisation and poetry into her practice to activate sensory awareness and explore possibility. Her current research engages meditative world-building from the source of memory, history, or a reimagining while entangled in the necessity and complexities of touch. In the near future, Nyah hopes to obtain a master’s degree. She believes creativity comes from open and inquiring minds.
