Since September 1997 they have been based mainly in Bonn and have represented the Bonn cultural scene at the Theater-Avantgarde-Festival in Brest (White Russia), at the Bonn Culture Days in Caracas (Venezuela) and at Ulan Bator (Mongolia).
They are both teachers of Modern Dance, Physical Theater and Contact Improvisation (e.g. are they guest teachers at the Prague Academy of Arts).
During the first eight years they worked only as a duo. Since 1999 they are collaborating also with guest artists.
Their first piece Little Blue Nothing won the price for the Best choreography and they both were announced as Dancers of the Year 1992 in Czechoslovakia. At the European Theatre Festival euro-scene-Leipzig in 1997, they were praised for their piece Applegames as the most convincing festival experience. The piece Happy Hour was chosen as one of the best productions of Germany in the last two years to the Tanzplattform Deutschland 2002 to Leipzig. Their production Adhn Desert Blues won the Audience Price at the Czech Dance Platform 2003 in Prag.
