The collaboration works in the psychiatry, started in 2014. This new field  keeps on its development:

This project is a long term project with the goal to create a dance department including all allocations for teaching, rehearsals and performance.
- In collaboration with the Center for Autism of Wuppertal, I started in 2014 a work with residents of the P.L.G..
This work was based as first step in the observation of the movements that people affected fro autism do, with the idea to give them the possibility to develop another language of expression and of communication. It deveopped in bringing those personns to enjoy movement and dance as far as there trouble could allow it.
 A dnce theatre piece named "My Castle" has been the porduct of this work. My Castle is not performed by personns affected from Autism but I prefered to have professionnal dancers and musicians on stage to express about this subject.

The collaboration works in the psychiatry, started in 2014. This new field  keeps on its development:

This project is a long term project with the goal to create a dance department including all allocations for teaching, rehearsals and performance.

- In collaboration with the Center for Autism of Wuppertal, I started in 2014 a work with residents of the P.L.G. Those persons are persons suffering from diverse difficulties due to autism. This work was based as first step in the observation of the movements that people affected from autism do, with the idea to give them the possibility to develop another language of expression and of communication. It developped in bringing those persons to enjoy movement and dance as far as there trouble could allow it. A dance theatre piece named "My Castle" has been the product of this work. « My Castle » is the title of this dance-theatre piece. Since most of residents from the PLG. are severe autism affected people, there are no residents in the cast of« My Castle ».  This piece is performed by professional dancers and musicians.
