We are in constant communication with our "Umwelt" (surrounding). My focus lies on the interaction between ourselves and others, that space of negotiation and manipulation, which often is ambiguous, indistinct or displaced.
Our body composes itself in relation to people, objects, tasks, feelings etc. How can I reveal the different layers of presence or absence of relation immanent in communication? How can techniques of displacement or reorganisation of these relations change their quality?
My current interest is the separation of body language and the spoken word. I work with the medium film as a starting point, which already includes a physical as well as a verbal script. A choreografic perspective on the film material allows me to approach a psychological narrative in a technical-analytical manner.
