After graduation, became a founding member of Busy Rocks. They have created two solo performances: A Mary Wigman Dance Evening (2009) and a personal yet collective history (2012). In collaboration with Mark Franko worked on Le marbre tremble (2014) and with Esteban Donoso on slugs’ garden (2014). They also work as a dancer for Zoo/Thomas Hauert. In June 2016 they received their master degree in Autonomous Design in KASK (Ghent) graduating with honors (grootste onderscheiding). Due to their ongoing research on the legacy of colonialism and dance history, they have been invited to give seminars and workshops in several European and American countries. Since 2013 they have been guest faculty at the Middelburg decolonial summer school co-directed by Rolando Vázquez and Walter Mignolo.
