about

working method, particular interest:

My understanding of choreographic work is less a composed dance form, and more as an architectural arrangement of the human body in space and time. I want to create a space where different levels of perception can be experienced. I question the environment and the role of the audience.  

My main research topic is how specific movements relate to social. This focus includes attempting to analyze my habits through scanning the space around me, and observing different people and their actions in daily life. Conscious and unconscious productions of postures and gestures have communicative functions, and I’m interested in these personal signatures.

The bodily narratives of domestic situations can be or can become a ritual. They are ordinary activities, like traveling between home and work, moments of being in-between, moments of waiting or taking a break. For me it is interesting to look specifically into all these „in-between spaces“ of embodied expressions of modern urban culture and civilization because they seem to tell stories of cultural and social practices and identities as a living enactment of the very present.  

Furthermore, questioning the role of the audience, which includes us all in this expanded enquiry, is very important to me. Experimenting with subtle variations and deviations away from a classical role of the audience as a recipient substantially influences my process.

In my choreographies and photo-video works, I am dealing with the interface between visual and performing arts.

Own choreographic works have been presented in Best German Dance Solo euro-scene Leipzig, Feedback Festival Athens,  Španski Borci Cultural Centre, (JSKD) Javni sklad RS za kulturne dejavnosti and Festival plesne ustvarjalnosti mladih ŽIVA Ljubljana, Quartier am Hafen und Zentrum für Zeitgenössischen Tanz Cologne, Shawbrook Irland, Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig, Dock11 Berlin, Mediteranski Plesni Center Svetvincenat, 19th INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL FAKI Zagreb, Pasinger Fabrik, HochX, schwere reiter und Schaustelle-Pinakothek der Moderne Munich.

As a performer I worked among others with Tino Sehgal, Susanne Linke, Chris Ziegler / Martina Morasso / Ted Stoffer and various Munich choreographers. In addition, works were created with the sound installation artist Allard van Hoorn, the director Tomma Galonska, Irena Čurik, Schorsch Kamerun/Herbert Achternbusch and Alexeij Sagerer, as well as the visual artists Patricia London ante Paris and Katharina Hinsberg. I also participated in research projects by Lisa Nelson, Nigel Charnock and Benoît Lachambre. Co-productions with those and other artists led me to the Pinakothek der Moderne, Haus der Kunst, Dance Festival Munich, pérelinages Kunstfest Weimar and Akademie der bildenden Künste Berlin. Furthermore, I worked at the Kammerspiele Munich and the Residenz Theater in Munich.

Also I am interested in art and inclusion and choreographing for the inclusive theater group of Freie Bühne München eV and for the project “Oh happy day Inklusionschor” (190 people with and without disabilities). Within this Project I received the cultural funding prize 2015 Fürstenfeldbruck and the “Miteinanderpreis” of the Bavarian Ministry of Social Affairs.

As a photo- and videographer, I am documenting  performances of the Munich perfomrance scene and realise individual exhibitions, e.g. in the Färberei Munich, Pasingerfabrik Munich, Kunstraum München, 100 days art Düsseldorf.
