In her works, she incessantly renegotiates the relationship between the human body and its surrounding objects. The artist uses everyday items, bestowing them with a strange and disturbing life through intensive and risky interactions with her own body. She utilizes her knowledge of dance and choreography to create a unique and thrilling performance. Puppetry, dance, as well as the awareness of the technical aspects of theatre, combine to become one piece – a spellbinding choreography of the body and mind.
