Two years ago, in 2013, I worked with choreographer Marguerite Donlon for the first time. This time she choreographed a piece for a younger audience, commenting on the "generation smartphone". Together with the international dance company from Wiesbaden I perform on stage. As the last time I did it in Saarbrücken it is an amazing experience again to watch the dancers performing their art and being a part of it.

It's always nice to get to travel far away for a project. That one was very special to me: Together with two other teammates from Ashigaru we flew to Barcelona for 9 days, being the main characters of the Deichmann commercial clip for the Autumn & Winter collection 2014. With a bunch of local breakdancers we brought some life into that project!
Together with the french high level gymnast Christopher Lenoury from Paris I traveled to Kortrijk, Belgium, to perform in front of the camera for the new LEXUS IS 300.
Since my personal goal in my movement is to be as clean in form as possible it was a beautiful cooperation: sharp, aesthetic gymnast moves combined with elegant, creative tricking/freerunning acrobatics.

Musikfestspiele Saar 2013. The Donlon Dance Company was working on the piece "Christus am Ölberg" in an old industry cathedral in Saarland, Germany. This was my first cooperation with an international dance ensemble - and it was amazing to see the dancers performing their art.
Marguerite Donlons idea was to integrate my rougher freerunning/acrobatic movement into the elegant and subtle style of ballet and contemporary dance.
The piece was completely booked out and a downright success.
Once a year the whole Adidas family comes together to join the "Adidas global market meeting" in Nürnberg, Germany, where their headquarters are located.

The picture shown is a screenshot from the video production - parts of it are shown in my 2015 professional reel. CLICK HERE to watch it!
