is a choreographer / director, performer and film-maker. What characterizes her is a non-disciplinary work and a method of collaboration with different people, using a game-structure with switching roles: each person is alternately director / author and performer for the other one.
1994 she co-founded the Berlin-based performance group „ex machinis“. She graduated in Film- and Media Arts at the Hochschule der Künste Berlin with Valie Export (1996) and obtained a DAAD-grant and a Merit Scholarship for the School of The Art Institute of Chicago. There she completed her Master in Performance with Lin Hixson of the performance group Goat Island and began collaborating with William Wheeler. Since 2000 she is based in Berlin. She was co-organizing “Labor Sonor“, experimental music and performance series, at KuLe from 2001 to 2003, and co-hosted the festival “Radioriff“ that took place in December 2003 at Ausland, Berlin. From 2006 until 2008 she was associated artist in residence at “Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers“ in France. In 2008 she published her book "Rire / Laugh / Lachen". Her productions include: "Holding hands" (2000), "Un après-midi" (2003), "Larry Peacock" (2005), "Merci" (2006), "Rire" (2008) and "Over The Shoulder"(2009).
2010 sees the development on a new choreography for four interpreters.
