An international writer and performer, she explores the universal dramas of childhood, love, betrayal, technology and memorial through her fearlessly seductive characters that making us laugh till our cheeks hurt. Her current project, Die Eiswüste /The Ice-Cream Desert is a multi-media theater piece based on footage shot in the High Arctic during a residency on the archipelago of Svalbard.
Plays: Dress Kiss Me: Love, Loss and a Dress that Talks; Just Back from Dreaming; Rum Boogie; No Change Given; and The Airport.
