Moving through different languages and genres
she uses the observation as a study of phenomena and beyond.
She deals with accurate wording and reactions
as existential humorous poetry, considering that:
aesthetics are an ethical statement which manifests our presence.
In her work, scenic space is an area of a major consistency and high risk,
working with terms of reality and absurdity,
precision and minimalism, tenderness and bravery.
Theater is no longer interested in a story but in the acceleration of thought.
