In 2013, Lee completed Choreography studies at HZT, Inter University Centre for Dance, Berlin. Lee approaches choreography as space that continually redefines itself through a live body in action. She focuses on notions of paradox, friction and multi-modal tensions and explores the usage of multi-tasking as a basic means of generating her work. Her research field derives from text, voice and movement; by treating relations between verbal language and physicality, she examines the emergence and transformation of meaning. Lee´s work is driven the by curiosity for contradictory meeting points, uncanny juxtapositions and fusions between different extremes which co-exist at the same time, within the same body. Lee has recently premiered the piece if it’s fun, a collaboration with the performer Maya Weinberg, in January in Berlin, as part of Tanztage 2014. She is currently working with various dance and theater makers such as artistwin Deufert & Plischke, Otso Huopaniemi, Costa Compangie and Joana Von Mayer Trindade.
