I arrange narrative spaces and create visual concepts.
I like storytelling and I have a thing for piles of sand. Thinking they can also tell stories, I find myself talking to sand, rubble and their grandmothers, the rocks.
I get very excited about historical things and their traces in contemporary spaces. Currently I am sniffing around archives for circus- entertainment- and performance history in Berlin - digging through sediments of colonialism, industrialisation and moralistic definitions of art.
I have developed excelent soft skills for the performing arts: I like listening to people. I easily get inspiration from collective moments - things said and done, from odd imagery and imagination. I work with matter, materials, textures and texts. I love weaving a thought further, translating it into spatial set ups, costumes or other visual formats. I get excited about developing thoughts and ideas together…
