Moving from within, my current artistic focus is directed towards making myself vulnerable. Hereby, I recognise vulnerability not as sign of weakness but a place of strength where internal emotion can be turned into performed motion.
Thus, my choreographic process starts off with listening to my own body, trusting in its intelligence and exploring its mental and physical potential as well as limitations.
To express that, I work with the isolation of my physical form to limit myself intentionally by e.g. reducing movement to a specific part of the body. Due to that, tension and attention are distilled, while inner and outer balance are gaining in importance.
