A short biography
Being a musician by trade I got to know the Alexander Technique during my studies at the conservatory in Arnhem, NL. I took private lessons with Eva Karczag and was introduced to Contact Improvisation as well as other movement practices. I fell madly in love with touch and movement, and understood pretty quickly that I wanted to attend the Alexander Technique teachers’ training program. So I moved to Berlin.
In September 2013 I received my diploma from the School For The Alexander Technique of Dan Armon, Berlin.
My experience and knowledge of the moving body and my teaching is strongly influenced by the Alexander Technique, Klein Technique and BMC® and by working intensively with my many wonderful teachers like Dan Armon, Eva Karczag, Joerg Hassmann, Hanna Hegenscheidt, Friederike Tröscher and Jens Johannsen.
I teach CI mostly in Berlin and at Festivals, I curate and organise the Moving Body events in Berlin, and I coordinate the annual intensive for the School For The Alexander Technique, Berlin.
My work in the field of production for the independent dance and theatre scene includes engagements with Sasha Waltz & Guests, Martin Nachbar, The Shakespeare Company Berlin, Tanzkongress Hannover (WILSON*BORLES Arts Management), Biennale Tanzausbildung (Buero Boragno), Performing RomArchive Festival (sauerbrey | raabe gUG), Joerg Hassmann, Hanna Hegenscheidt and Dan Armon among others.
