I believe in "art that hurts, provokes and rises in revolt to make the world a better place" (Zentrum für Politische Schönheit, Berlin). As a performer and theatre maker, I look for new ways to work collaboratively, cross borders and interdisciplinary boundaries that engage audiences in a twenty-first century way.
