„Dance must be touching and not be explained. Dance is movement, it has its own energy and power of expression.
With dance, I can tell stories, which remarkably always leave room for imagination,
or it is just pure movement which triggers the fantasy. As a choreographer, I have the inner desire,
despite dance stories or pure movement to touch the audience, with a new inspirational experience through dance.”
