Last week Margarita Gómez and I used the dramatic light and lovely location of Café Berlín in Santiago to film material for a new work with the working title "Berlin". What does 'home' mean to you?

A few days later, again at Café Berlín, I performed "Berliner Lieder", improvisations to songs about Berlin, as part of "100 en 1 día" Festival Santiago.

Thank you to Margarita and Cristobal Koch of Café Berlín.

'Living with Sin' will be screened as part of Brave New World, a group exhibition accompanied by screenings, performances, workshops and discussions. Brave New World is a new project on the Greek island Lesvos and curated by Nicolas Vamvouklis, who had seen 'Living with Sin' at a festival in Italy last year. Lizzie and I are very happy that the film is reaching audiences far and wide!

The work started at Art Culture Center Bækkelund Bornholm in August 2014 has finally found its form. Thank you to Lizzie J Klotz for a thoughtful and sensitive edit. It's turned out to be a dance film I imagine to play in a gallery exhibition themed around people and their relationship to the countryside and the seaside one day.

Read more and watch an excerpt of the film on the 'To the sea' page.

Last year I worked for filmmaker Onyeka Igwe who is currently based in Toronto. She asked me to create a very personal piece of choreography and to chose a location that was close to my heart. So for one beautiful day last summer we went to Queen's Wood and filmed in the middle of a forest. Onyeka's film 'Can we dance for me?' will be screened at this year's Dance Film Festival UK in Programme 2 from 3pm.

"Dance is language.

Dance is memory.

Dance is the profane construction of self."

This June I had the privilege to work with Michaela Cisariková and her company MCDC, a great team of dancers and artists, again. We filmed a site-specific work exploring the six step in Crystal Palace.

I enjoyed the physical challenge and also working on site, facing fears of height and dancing with the structures that remain of the palace.
