As a professional dancer in Germany, she worked with Cia Sonia Rodriguez, Inside The Body Performing Arts, Frantics Dance Company, Judith Sanchez Ruiz, Edivaldo Ernesto etc.

Eva's vision focuses on the ability of the body to speak through physical vocabulary. Eva is attracted by the idea that each body can become a storyteller through the international language of dance. She is constantly looking for ways in which dance would develop as a communication tool and therefore as an artistic source that expresses social needs and concerns of the humanity. Her aim is to create universes which bring her honest understanding of the world on stage using philosophical patterns and questions as the main source to create physical dialogues between dancers and audience.
