She made her first return to the world of musicals in Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Frank Van Laecke, in 2011.

In recent years she has also emerged as a singer and musician. She has performed in just about every cultural centre with such musical productions as Diep in mij, a tribute to YasmineKleinkunsteiland and Club 27, a production she created together with her husband and in which she shows off her talents as a singer, pianist and violinist.
