MOMENTARILY


I am researching for the program “Neustart Kultur #TakeHeart”
of the foundation “Darstellende Künste Berlin”.
Based on documentary photos and pictures that catch the
moment, I am interested in the way that people have touched
each other, over the course of different epochs and in different
cultures.
…and I am working on various new concepts for dance pieces
in various constellations…
