I was born in Vienna. I spent many years in Berlin and Nigeria as academic staff. Since 2012, I have been teaching workshops in contact improvisation in Austria, France, Germany, Nigeria (Trufesta Festival), Benin, and Togo (Nikaala Festival). I have been performing at at varios occasions. Recent collaborations involve Michael Schmacke/Fake Masters in venues like MicaMoca or Tacheles, Mex Schlüpfer at the Volksbühne Berlin, Lynda Ait Amer (Berlin) and Illuminate Theatre (Lagos, Nigeria).
In my recent teaching, I try to share the intense experience my body absorved from staying four years in a place where there was no other white person than me, paired with what I learned from observing the use of bodies in West-African culture, combining it from my somatic experience which is heavily influenced by Nancy's work, Butoh, Authentic Movement, material for the spine. I am increasingly interested to explore and develop scores. All these techniques, I offer as tools to unravel the magic of dancing beyond the hetero duet-bubble.
