During her residency she will work at the beautiful Lake Studios Berlin next February she will work on her project Augmented Dance by light: A research on e-textile and dance
During her Dance-Tech/Lake Studio Residency, she will continue her research on e-textile and dance with the help of Pauline Vierne,http://www.dance-tech.net/profile/PAULINEVIERNE.
By using different techniques to light the body space, she creates a material that is neither light neither movement but can exist only by the combination of both.
"Work at the Lake Studios will help me create a vocabulary based on movement and light. As an outcome of this work, I will design a framework for a 4D dance/light class!!".
This research is part of TAFO#2 - The Temple Had Oblique Window. A dance performance that discuss today's role of climate change discourse.
