about my choreographical work,
There are some works in choreography that I do with my own dancers and actors. This work is what we can call dancetheater work in the sense that I use movement as well as theatrical situation in my vocabulary. The pieces composing my repertory are what I could call my personal work as independent choreographer (see Choreography for Dance-theatre).
And there are some works in choreography that I do for theater directors or opera directors. This kind of works are more collaboration works which are realized together with the directors (see Choreography for Theatre and Opera).
With certain theatre directors, my part is more then just choreography. If I call choreography the work of creating dancing steps for the dancers or actors, then I have to add the creation part that I like to call the « visual directing ». In the sense that, with the director Robert Sturm by example, we are more in a situation of collaboration work of the total directing of the piece; Robert is more concentrated on the acting, and I am more busy with of all what is visual.
The directors who I mainly worked are both theater directors who lately developed their directing also for opera. Yoshi Oida was the first theatre director who i worked with at the beginning of my career. Since 2000, Burkhard C.Kosminski for the Dusseldorfer Schauspielhaus, and the the National Theater of Mannheim in Germany.
I started my collaboration work with the director Robert Sturm in 2015 with the play "Romeo and Juliette".
