I keep criss-crossing between vocal performance art, choreographic approach, space installation and urban performance, as well as between formal minimalism and interventions in the realm of complex systems, led by interest in the interplay between structure and action. Sound and movement are aknowledged as two aspects of the same process. The question is the possibility of freedom.

Currently involved in a solo research as well as in collaborative projects with Dodi Helschinger, Anja Weber, Lerna Babikyan, María Ferrara, Gosia Gajdemska, Michal Talma-Sutt, Korhan Erel, Gabriel Santander, Éric Sarner.
Art director of p.u.r.e. – performative urban research ensemble, which explores the urban sound and movement within the frame of site-specific performative walks (p.u.r.e. walks) and other forms of urban performance (URBAN POLYCHROMIA), see urban performance.
Member of a vocal quintet Medulla (dir. by Ulrike Sowodniok).
