She staged Crumpled with Saori Hala, the awarded piece Flying Birds with the butoh dancer Nobuyoshi Asai and more recently with Satoshi Kudo, formerly dancer with and assistant to Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, with whom she has produced Mazari and is currently working on their new piece Hasekura Project.

After the studies at Centro Andaluz de Danza -Andalusian Dance Center-, she began her first professional stage performing around England, Holland, France and Spain and with her latest creations she has visited India, South Korea, China and different cities in Japan.

Interested in art in its broadest sense, she usually investigate with video, sound, text or costumes in a very simple and sensitive way and thinking about the relation between two or more human beings and what unites or separates them. Also in her solo choreographies there is another not-present body to refer to.
