At the end of 2010, together with the Mexican performer Antonio Blanco, she co-founded Energinmotion Physical Theatre. Energinmotion was a company that aimed to devise new work that explored human behaviour through researching a progression from realism towards stylisation. Energinmotion projects included: La Ola, a short piece based in the story Mi Vida Con La Ola (My Life With the Wave) by Octavio Paz; BE LONELY WITH ME, a site specific piece on urban solitude performed at the St Pancras International Station (London); and the devised show Where the Nights Are Blue and Electric. The company was active between 2010 and 2013, and performed in London, Barcelona and Paris.
