I’m very much interested in a continuous process of learning and growing. Recently I’ve been working on the connection of diverse somatic practices into composition on a practical and theoretical level, besides deepening my own yoga practice. I’m looking forward to more co-teaching as the direct and intermediate exchange between students and docents is a very beneficial learning experience for all participants. The idea of “instant composition” is a big influence on all my different creative outbursts. Recently I’ve been extremely energized by our Berlin based performance group “grapeshade” (two musicians, two dancers / with whom we perform regularly. Whenever I have time I enjoy being out in nature and to get back to the roots.
