Artistic Vision

I am a sensitive and curious artist. Qi Gong brought me to listen to my creative impulses by giving them the space to germinate to their full potential. I am interested in partner work where bodies create magnified situations. I am completely invested in gestural phrases which are deployed on a large scale. The integration of breaking into my choreographic universe is constantly revalidated by my passion for working on the ground and the musicality intrinsic to this art.
