I’m an artist, dancer and choreographer based in Berlin. Through my work I explore the line between fiction and reality. I am interested in the tension that exists between life and the performing state, between the stage and public space. My major interest lies in the possibility of creating intimate spaces in order to be able to question concepts of relationships, their agreements and limitations.
