My work includes set and costume design for modern and classical ballet productions worldwide. I studied opera direction at Hamburger Hochschule für Musik und Theater and created in 2006, in the age of 26, my first piece as a set and costume designer for Staatsballett Berlin. The same year I directed my first opera production Carmen by George Bizet for Ensemble Escritura Hamburg. In recent years I brought new life to my work as a director with The Count of Luxemburg by Franz Lehár for Estonian National Opera and Iolanta & Nutcracker by Peter I. Tchaikovsky for Landestheater Salzburg.
In the past I have collaborated with modern choreographers Fabio Adorisio, Alejandro Cerrudo, Edward Clug, Martin Chaix, Dominique Dumais, Marco Goecke, Jack Lister, Trey McIntyre, Sofia Nappi, Juliano Nunes, Kevin O’Day, Eno Peci, Tim Plegge, Simone Valastro and Jeroen Verbruggen.
