Where would you like to wake up tomorrow morning?

On top of a crowded train in India, with only a roll of toilet paper, since as they say, “for everything else, there’s MasterCard.”  


Can you name a book, a movie, a piece or a song, which you think is about you?

„I want to ride my bycicle, I want to ride my bike.” (Queen: Bicycle Race)


What would you do, if you wouldn’t be doing what you do now?

I would be a doctor or a sorceress, to practice healing.


When and how do you get your best ideas?

I just need water: I would say in the shower or at a river or a lakeside. I might get comments now that I should shower more…


What is your greatest fear?

To lose the joy of lighthearted laughing, my smile, and most of all the people who can put an honest, happy smile on my face.  


Which historical figure or fictive personality would you like to share a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of wine with?

With Frigyes Karinthy. He would drink whatever he wants and I would drink his words.


What is your oldest piece of clothing?

My first red ballet dress.


Do you have any superstitions or rituals before entering the stage?

Would you call shaky legs and nervous tiptoeing a ritual?


Which sensory organ is the most important for you?

The eyesight. To perceive dance, the main thing you need is vision; the sound can be missing, and it works to the rhythm of the heartbeat as well. The eye plays a crucial role in human relationships too.


Is there one fact about you, which would surprise others if they would know it?

I can only count to eight. (5-6-7-8 and 1-2-3-4) Although many people already know that :-)
