My artistic practice deals with individual and collective survival strategies as a necessary part of our everyday life, looks into new modes of connectivity & collaboration through self-organization.


By playing with dystopian & utopian scenarios the seemingly unreal becomes tangible -

opening new possibilities in our bodies & minds, which can re-inform our shared space.


Through my work I explore the relationship between dance and music. For me, these are inseparably connected as the most original forms of artistic expression. Both the physical/rhythmical, as well as the musical/vocal memory are intriguing in its function as an analogue memory. This opens up access to temporally layered information, in which different periods, genres and other aspects of music and dance become apparent.
