Her choreographic work explores the relationship of nervous and visceral sensations to the configuration of body and movement. She attempts to delve into the inhabited body, to show it when it is overcome by a force that animates and shakes it. The themes that make up her creations and practice: identity, restrained expression, transformation, hyperactivity.
