About me

I work as a freelance dancer, choreographer and dance teacher. I received my education at the Palucca Academy of Dance Dresden. Half a year before completing this, I was diagnosed with an incomplete paraplegia. Despite this, I continued to choose a life of dance and choreographed my bachelor’s thesis “Behind human understanding” in 2018 in a wheelchair. I received my first arrangement at the Theater Pforzheim in the production “Perfekt Unperfekt. ” I was involved in “DieTanzkompanie” by Gregory Darcy in Esslingen and in “Echogedicht”, a production by Tiago Manquinho. In 2020 I led the inclusive dance workshop “Triple A” at the Landesbühne Sachsen and was also featured in “Nussknacker” and “Difference. ” At the same time, I am studying psychology at the Technical University in Dresden. I want to create a bridge between the two pillars in my life. As an artist, I want to convey the freedom of value of dance and break down the stigmatization of physical and mental limitations.

The Talent im Land Scholarship Programme aims to accompany, promote and support talented and committed young people who, due to their personal biography or their social background, have to overcome special obstacles on their way to the Abitur.

The Löwenbrücke Braunschweig Foundation opens up opportunities to present health promotion for people with physical disabilities for social participation and integration through technology in a comprehensive and unifying way. Interdisciplinary, creative thinking and acting are in demand when it comes to the development and application of technology for the treatment of complex, physical diseases in order to participate in social life.

Tanzbar Bremen

Through the support of the project Tanzraum – Zukunft by DIEHL+RITTER/TANZPAKT RECONNECT, Tanzbar Bremen 2022 was able to award three artists residences for individual artists with disabilities or inclusive creative duos. A residency offers time for research and rehearsal for artistic dance projects. Ideas or new movement material can be tried out alone or as a couple. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to hold my couple residence in autumn 2022.
