Movement scores and digital sounds create a research environment for all attendees to encounter each other within. These site-specific constellations blur the boundaries between being, performing and participating.

They completed their master’s degree with a thesis on the limitations of Western technologies of dance notation in 2022 and carried out a solo research residency as part of the program "TANZPAKT in residence.“ Their projects have been supported by numerous project grants throughout the years.
