"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).

In the big cities, whether Mexico City, Hamburg or Tokyo, our eating habits are changing. Everywhere you can find the quickly packaged, artificial, chemically prepared dishes. Especially from the Asian region, the "Noodle" soups are very common and popular. They are prepared in 5 minutes with boiling water. Doesn't this kind of meal make you lonely? And to what extent do our eating habits influence our personality and identity?
In the second part of the short film quick instant soup (shot in Hamburg), a lonely woman turns into a Japanese woman after she continuously tastes the "Noodle" soups.
