I am working in-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.

My current interests are
the unsayable and the unsaid,
the apparatus of relationship and the relational states (between humans and non-humans),
the materiality and the textures.

Besides my solo research I am embarking currently on collaborative projects with Dodi Helschinger, Anja Weber, María Ferrara, Ensemble Medulla and p.u.r.e. – performative urban research ensemble.
