Ida has always been opened to other forms of art and collaborations. In 2015 and 2016, she collaborated in Paris with Florian Pautasso, a young stage director, during the creation of his play “Notre foyer”.
She also appeared on screen, playing the role of a pianist, for the American TV Series “Find me in Paris” – Season 1 and 2 (2017/2018) and the French one “Munch” (2018).
