The Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies are a very central element in my artistic process as choreographer, filmmaker and visual artist. I am considering LBMS hereby not as a static concept, but a as a vocabulary which while being itself in a constant process, supports me to continuously expand my insights on movement. 


I am producing and creating my works in Berlin and Indonesia and they have been presented in festivals in Asia and Europe i. e. Hong Art Festival, Taipei Documentary Film Festival, Berlin Performing Art Festival. 


As a lecturer in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies I am specialized on applications in the visual arts and mask work. Since 2017, I am teaching in collaboration with Nartan K. Niemeyer (CLMA) Introductory Classes.
