Research in San Francisco

Thanks to a grant given by the City of Zürich, who covered my flat and studio-time, I could do my artistic research in San Francisco. From March to May 2015 i started to write my own artistic manifesto based on the works of Yvonne Rainer and Mette Ingwartsen.

"Vivarium" is a sensual description of nature, through the means of dance, music and speech. Appearances under the open sky were learned about by watching, hearing and sensing them, to find out what they (still) mean to our own existence.

"dances to a beat“ – a Trio with Kati Korosuo and Doriane Locatelli

A piece with the focus on repetition, minimalism and Contemporary Dance Aerobic.  We have developed a specific approach to improvisation and extended it for the performance structure that we use.

Head or Tail?! How wealthy is Switzerland really? Money connects and disconnects. We throw coins, swing thalers, hoard money, invest it, waste and lose it. 
What do we take with us? What if time wasn't money?
