She is currently writing a book, which explores a groundbreaking, scientific approach to butoh. She teaches trauma-informed Butoh classes.

“This is one of the best workshops I have ever taken. If it were available every month, I would always take it. All aspects are applicable to my work as a theatre maker.”
