Marie began performing when she was still a teenager, in Allemaal Indiaan by Alain Platel and Arne Sierens. In 1997, one of her pieces was nominated as the Best Solo of Belgian Dance, an award organized by Victoria and Alain Platel. She earned her diploma from the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance in 2005; in 2004, she co-founded the Collectiv.At, a collective based in Belgium whose productions often tour abroad. Her first piece Quien soy es, won the competition Jóvenes Artistas in Spain.
Marie is also passionate about photography and contemporary art, and is currently developing a solo which combines photography, installation and performance. She teaches yoga and contemporary dance at De Ingang (Ghent), and teaches dance and theatre workshops in Belgium and abroad.
