What is indispensable during your work?

”My g-string :)”

 

What do you prefer doing after a long day of work?

”A lot of things, the thing that I love the most is to have slow-motion and on-goingness and extension: riding my bicycle really slow, listening to evangelic music, seeing the universe move when I move toward to it

Another thing I really love is blasting the speakers when I get home, dance more, dispensing energy by headbanging until the neighbours complain and I have to turn down the music

But I also like doing something completely different, putting myself in a completely new environment, throwing my senses, creating so much vibrations that it flips me making me forget the day and i’m just there now.”

 

What do you want to tell/communicate to people?

”That is actually what I want to tell: The energy that we carry inside of us, how we being together in a room, communicate to one another. How we communicate the translucent matter that we call energy. So if you ask me it is a endless reflection – we are endless reflections of one another. It is about connection: about experiencing a beautiful intense moment together – or not at all and that is also completely fine, because I also like it when people don’t like my work.

So, it is really about an unmasking: unmasking and the kind of performing that I need to do, the behaviours that I need to install to unmask.”

 

What is your guilty pleasure?

”I have no guilt for pleasure, why would i have guilt for pleasure? I have no guilt for pleasure.

But if you ask in relation to the care for my body or something like that it is chocolate, but I have no shame for that. And I also really like Eurovision, and glitter, and drag queens and I want to be one.”

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

”In 5 years time I’m 40 and I wish with all my heart that I’m still in love with moving and dancing and creating universes with and through my body and connect with people through dancing.”
