"For me, the medium of video is a wonderful complement to my work, since dance is, after all, ephemeral and short-lived. I have realized various video works so far, from experimental to on stage and/or in the form of a short documentary. My last video project MY DANCE SPACE is a good example, which I realized as a reflection of the first lockdown with dancers* and choreographers from Hamburg (February 2021).

Short-Video about the Senegalese Wrestling training in Dakar

I visited the costume designer Tukki Mode in his studio in Dakar, when we went out of his house into the beach, just before sunset, I saw all these young wrestlers training. Startled, Tukki had to watch as I, with my broken French, asked the coach if he would allow me to film. And he agreed. Normally it's absolutely forbidden for foreigners to film them training.
