Apart from directing her shows she composes music and creates choreography. She begins artistic work by setting the rhythm and sound of the performance, which is why music or rather a musicality plays a major role in her staging. Her passion is writing theatre songs and composing poetic stage images. She is bitterly looking for her own formula for visual and musical theatre.
