My departure point for experimentation is the body.

Movement is is the motor for imagination.

Choreography is the field in which I discover new knowledge about the reality in which we live.

At times, I communicate with different artistic disciplines, crossing the boundaries to neighbouring worlds such as; the documentary theatre, academic research, ethnography and community projects. 

In my work I am interested in understanding and renegotiating the relationship between cultural and traditional knowledge, ourselves, our body and its properties.

I am interested in combining movement with voice and language, examining the object/subject dialect and wishes to celebrate the richness of possible perspectives that can be embodied on and off stage.

Partially
To create a space
To experiences a sense of reality
To become active in a state of being
artists and audience
 
Often
I start by defining a question, a limitation 
I make sure to empty my body from unnecessary information
I formulate a way of behaving, that fits the context of work happening now
 
Therefore
Each work is specific in its own structure, aesthetics, style and texture
It is about experiencing emotions rather than illustrating moods 
sensing the borders between things, rather than the things
It is about reality and fiction, presence and absence, concrete and invisible 
It is the gap between what Is and what we perceive
It is about quality of attention, saying “Yes, I don’t know”
It reforms definitions, resists itself
It accepts that the present disappears, and that presence is relative
 
Eventually
It is about reaching one person’s eye and soul--
Their sense of reality 
It is interested in appearing as one thing 
the illusion of Freedom.
