Why did you decide to take part in this project? What is your interest within the engagement with the „reading format“?

I am interested in transforming an idea that comes from outside the dance sphere into movement and dance. I enjoy the challenge from transdisciplinary arts into how to find the common ground and to express it in a way that will enhance both.I want to transform the beauty of poetry into movement, or to give life to a story using the human body. I wonder how I can give life through movement, to other people experiences and how I can embody their story, their experience. What kind of polarity can we develop throughout the creative process and how two different structures can come together creating a third one, a much more complete one.

 

I am an independent professional dancer and choreographer. In my works I cross over performing genres integrating multiple dance styles and techniques. My style of dance is contemporary infused with elements from international folk dancing. I like the challenge in harmoniously combining diverse type of movement and philosophy into choreography.

• 15 years of international contemporary dance performances & productions
• 10 years of working at dance companies & commercial shows
• 8 years of independent production / choreographies
• 5 years of workshops teaching (for professionals and amateur dancers)
• Classical ballet degree
• 2.000+ performances
• Over 2.000.000 people in the audience
