SheI choreographed most of her work with the latter with productions for Built on Stilts, The Yard and the Hebrew Center in Martha’s Vineyard.

"My choreographies are the result of a close collaboration with the dancers. With them and depending on their skills and abilities, I shape what is first a concept into a finished product without ever favoring one style of dance. My inner motive is to bring out, with contrasting and incongruous images, some aspects of the tragicomedy of humanity."
