Since 2017 I work as an assistant teacher and since 2019 as a teacher for the project JUNCTION.
Since 2014, Mobile Dance offers dance workshops in accommodation centres for refugees in Berlin. The project combines the approaches of dance artists with specialist educators to support children and their families in coping with the repercussions of traumatic experiences, arriving in Berlin and managing their current challenging living situation.
The artists teach once a week, every week and the project becomes an integral part of each centre with which we work. The focus is upon a trauma- and diversity-sensitive body training which activates inner resources, develops stamina and strength, and counters the effects of anxiety and stress through breathing and touch. Another important element is improvisation, supporting the participants to be in the "here and now". Co-creative choreographic processes work with themes relevant to the young people to offer a place to investigate issues affecting them and to expand their own agency and creative potential.

Since autumn 2019, I have been working as a freelancer for Staatliche Museen zu Berlin in the Education and Transmission Department.
I mainly conduct and develop guided tours and workshops at the Museum of European Cultures. Here, I work primarily with dialogical formats in order to connect to the interest and experiences of the visitors and to allow an exchange rather than a one-sided mediation.
In times of COVID-19 we further developed short formats in other museums such as the Alte Nationalgalerie Berlin.
