I originally come from the south east area of Austria (Burgenland) where I started my first dance training in the balletschool Oberwart at the age of 3. I remained for 16 years, attending ballet and point classes, Modern and Jazz Dance. Following my passion for dance and movement, I studied at the Conservatory Vienna at the department ‚Contemporary Dance and Pedagogy‘, which I graduated with the Bachelor of Arts in 2007.During my studies I received the ERASMUS scholarship for the dance department of Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul.
From 2007-2009 I worked as a dancer for the company D.ID Dance Identity and its choreographers Liz King and Claire Granier. During that time I participated in research works of international artists in residencies at the D.ID studios.
In 2010 I finished my Postgraduate Dance and Performance Studies at LABAN centre in London, where I collaborated with different choreographers for several collective projects the following year; funded by Burgenland county, Amt der Burgenländischen Landesregierung – Department ‚Culture & Sience‘
Inspired by research projects, workshops and intensives with artists such as Lia Haraki, Guy Cools, Kate Hilder, Seke Chimutengwende, Katharine Markee and Peter Jasko, I started playing with ideas and movement in a creative way. In 2010 I presented my first solo sketch ‚With(out)‘ at Leicester Square Theatre and Newington Dance space in London, followed by the premier of the solo piece ‚collecting bones‘ as part of the residence program Artist At Resort at Tanz*Hotel Wien in 2012.
I found my base in Vienna now. I’m fascinated by the bodily movement itself and I’m constantly searching for what is moving me – if it’s different environment, music, working with camera, images, etc. These moments I’d like to catch in short dance sketches.
I am in need of dance and I wanna give enough space for that, just for the sake of dancing. My dance styles are Contemporary, Physical Theatre and Hip Hop.
