On what I do and Upcoming Performances


The words translation and interpretation emerge both as term and meaning when witnessing or reading a piece of art, performance or text. Further talking about the experienced is again translating our own understanding back into words, text and language. If everything is text - following and reinterpreting Jacques Derrida's words - then what does it mean to read, perceive, interpret?

I see my work as always situated in the inbetween spaces, wether it may be described as the work of a dancer, choreographer, artist or as art work, a dance piece, an installation or text, into and out of the body. I believe in art as universally understood without offering only one understanding. Making people think and reflect as its main purpose. An art of moving, to move and make move,

Ever since the City Dance Köln from 2016 under the artistic direction of Stephanie Thiersch/mouvoir, our collective has been evolving and is becoming a format on its own in a mix of Parkour and Contemporary Dance throughout different spaces. With invitations to festivals in Cologne and elsewhere.
