For Spieltriebe Festival 7 she then creates Encounters with the Dancers of the Dance Company Osnabrück. She is continuously working with theater director Henri Hüster. In their work in the independent scene and at State Theaters they explore the relationship between body and language. In the rehearsal process, the physical expression of the performer is treated equally to the spoken word. What does language do to the body, what does the body do to language? This correlating effect between language and body is at the centre of the performance.
