Sammi Lim for The Dance Enthusiast: Your ‘Dance Palatte’ series marries movement and painting to extraordinary effect. Have you explored both art forms in reverse? Such as creating a dance inspired by a painting?

I think that’s a great idea – the dance and the painting existing at the same time in my subconscious, because before I began the “Dancer’s Palette” series, I had dreams of elaborate, colorful and theatrical choreography being staged in full costume.

So the dance – yes, it’s already there… I just need to hold auditions and teach it.
