Christina’s research topic HAUFEN is concerned with sexual dependency and interdependency between individuals. Many people in big cities like London have the desire to be independent, but at the same time a craving for the intensity that comes from interdependency. (Nan Goldin)
In order to get inspiration she collaborated with Jelly Luise, to make a mood film that would support her final collection in terms of colours, shapes and structure. Their common research expanded, considering movement and time as well as bodies in relation to each other. Christina worked with Ryan Jones from London Contemporary Dance School, who acted as the choreographer for this piece, coordinating dancers from Rambert and LCDS. This supports the narrative and concept of her collection. HAUFEN shows a feminine side but has a rough touch to it. It is minimal but also very sophisticated.
