The foundation of my contemporary dance career was laid at the Iwanson School of Contemporary Dance in Munich and consolidated during a MA in Performance at the Place, a BA (Hons) in Dance Theatre as well as a Diploma in Dance Studies at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London. Thanks to the exhilarating London dance scene, I gradually realised the almost boundless range of possibilities for dance artists, at the same time shaping plans for my own future journey.

 

I love to explore and develop what dance has to offer, both as a performer and choreographer; but I also have the desire to engage with the public and other artists. This eventually led me to establish my own dance company: The Follow Through Collective collaborates with artists from various backgrounds in order to combine different art forms on stage, often creating a multi-channel experience for the audience. My practice is eclectic and multidisciplinary, with a distinct focus on social, political or ecological problems in our society. We performed our work at many festivals in the UK and Europe, for example, the Resolution Festival, Emerge Festival, University of the Arts Berlin, Albany Theatre and the Camden Fringe Festival.

 

In the meantime, I performed works by Florence Peake & Eve Stainton, Matthias Sperling, Sasha Roubicek, Matta Sakka (Sasha Waltz), Anna Williams, Sonja Rafferty, Gary Lambert, Marie Yagami, Roman Baca and I have been a dancer at the theatre in Würzburg.

 

Since 2019, I was undertaking a MAF in Choreography at Trinity Laban to further investigate into my artistic practice.


For me, being an artist is a life-long process and informed by one’s experience as an individual and a member of society. 

I am honured to be a Leverhulme Arts Scholar, which I received during my MFA in Choreogrpahy at Trinity Laban.
