across Europe (Bandits-Mages, ESAL Metz, ENSA Bourges, Spektrum Berlin), leading courses
in live creation processes. She often collaborates with theatre companies and musicians (Robot
Koch and Rag and Bones, amongst others), creating video content and its scenography on stage.
From 2010 to 2014, She created the multimedia work Fucking Wonderland (4 videos, 1 live video
set, 18 drawings), which was fully exhibited in Kyoto at the National Manga Museum in the spring of 2014. She was part of Dokfest Festival curators’ team in Kassel (DE) from 2014 to 2016, in the audiovisual live section.
