« Interlude » - 2018
A fragmented vision of the body moving through time, this animation explores timelines of passing, meeting and physically poetic moments of contact. Sometimes the constant notion of moving forward through time can blind us from the fickle present and the freedom to become lost within it.

« ViMotion » - 2018
ViMotion is an interactive dance show which overturns the traditional scheme where dancers enact a choreography over a fixed musical base.
