I am an artist researcher and currently a doctoral candidate at the Performing Arts Research Centre of the University of the Arts Helsinki, Theatre Academy. I studied History, Political Science and Sociology at the Universities of Freiburg and Oregon/Eugene (US), Dance/Choreography at the School for New Dance Development, and com­pleted my M. A. in Artistic Research at the University of Amsterdam. Working as an independent dancer since 2002, I trained and cooperated intensely with Body Weather Amsterdam in the performance project ‘Something Here That Is Not There’.

The subject of my doctoral research is the epistemic potential of Body Weather performance training as a medium of artistic research.
