She is interested in the meeting point between the sensuality of the body and the asphalt, between the meditative timelessness of the elements and the fast pace of the city. She likes to create reminders of bodilyness and sensuality, letting herself being moved by the elements.

History of Site and Related Water Issues:

The Limmat commences at the outfall of Lake Zurich and flows in a northwesterly direction, after 35 km reaching the river Aare. Historically, the Limmat was an important navigation route.
Despite it’s small size, Switzerland holds about 5% of Europe’s water reserves. 100% of the Swiss population enjoys secured access to clean drinking water. In average, a swiss citizen uses about 162 liters of water per day, not counting the water that is needed to produce the goods we consume. In very little countries worldwide clean water is such an abundant ressource as in Switzerland. With our dance we would like to draw attention to this privilege, inviting people to value and protect this treasure.
