－What do you think is the significance of physical expression in contemporary society?
I think physical expression is very important in contemporary society because it allows individuals to express themselves without using words. Just like dance, it allows individuals to express themselves using their body! Like a universal language.
－What do you want to convey to people through your physical expression?
I hope that my physical expression is an extension of my personality. Through the way I dress and act, I hope that everyone can see the real Tiler.
－What do you think about lately?
I am thinking about how lucky I am to be in Japan and sharing my love for dance with an new audience♡
