As a choreographer


I choreograph to question and to uncover connections and cross struts.

In my works I weave dance, objects, music and text into a unique choreography carpet. I create multidisciplinary dance theater projects, performances in special locations away from the theater.


My work is driven by empowerment - I want to empower myself, my dancers and collaborators as well as the audience - to think and act independently.


My way of working is based on intensive research and intuition that guides and inspires my creative processes.



Research: "Don´t create - Be created"

I´m constantly looking for exercises that allow to widen the boundaries of creativity.
