In her work she is inspired by philosophical questions, which she is reflecting on with and through her own body and movement. Departing from the materiality of her own body she is interested in how immateriality is creatd and read. The public is playing an important role and questions around perception are treated in a specific way in each of her work.

In her movement she relies on the architecture of the body and the sensations that are created by using or defying gravity.  She likes to question habits and to creat unsusual images. Movement and images are confronted with questions of perception, of biography, of culture and politcs. Her pieces ar choreographed and also improvised or site-specific.
