Not a choreographer for the HCU this year, but the leading dance pedagogue to watch over my students from the Erika Klütz Schule für Theatertanz und Tanzpädagogik. So proud! Performance tonight in the City Nord in Hamburg!

LICHT performance installation

A sleepless morning and warm memories of the University of Roehampton made me dig up videos of my first year as a MFA student. Here is a newly edited teaser of my performance installation LICHT for the module “Creating Event Spaces” in 2013. Thank you to all the beautiful people in this video, who came to see it and helped me with my process. Check it out:

Wenn der Falter stirbt,
fühlt er dann
sein Herz, wie es nicht mehr schlägt
und weiß er dann,
dass dieses Licht ihn mit Unendlichkeit belohnt?
Dass mit dem Licht
sein ganzes Leben sich gelohnt?
(Excerpt of Isabel Tuengerthal’s Der Falter)

On a different Note…

Mumbai 2011

My name is Suse.

I am a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer. I like the smell of rain on a summer’s day and the way it feels when skin touches skin. I get excited about swimming in the ocean, observing bats in the night skies and listening to magical music. I am not a photographer. I have a shitty camera. But my eyes have seen a few things, and this world is beautiful and full of strange beings. Thus, I wanted to share some of my visual adventures, impressions and memories with you.

Hidden Leaves – Thesis Performance


Time is running! Save the date for my thesis performance on the

5th June 2014 @ 7pm, Michaelis Theatre, University of Roehampton

Hidden Leaves is a collection of three unlikely short stories, interweaving several plot lines around the ancient Japanese aphorism “The End is Important in All Things”. The need of parting from another, deathly ways of procreation in the animal kingdom and the devotion of one’s life to the Way of the Samurai are explored through the bodies of the six dancers. As these unlikely stories coalesce into a non-linear arrangement of dance and music, we might recognize as T.S. Eliot did that “to make an end is to make a beginning”.
