She translated two books from Zygmunt Bauman (‘In Search of Politics’ and ‘Postmodern Ethics’). From 2006 until 2011 she worked for Tanzplan Deutschland, an initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation, and for the choreographic centre K3 in Hamburg. With dramaturge Sandra Noeth she edited ‘tanzhefte’, a project of Tanzplan Bremen and Performance Studies Hamburg.
