At the time, she also coordinated and produced an existing choreographic project called Switch, for the dancers of the company (a platform where they could have the experience of creating themselves using professional tools such as the stage of the Lucent theater.) She created 'Under the same moon' and 'Blink of an eye' under this platform.

Having left NDT, Celia continues to delve into her fascination for movement, art, the world, human kind in all its complexity…she follows her path of expression and sharing…
