About me
I'm Movement Directress and Theatre Maker, and movement coach for the actors, who hold masters in Movement Directing and Teaching from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London. I’m grounding my work with the actors on a creative conversation which starts from their ideas to further sparkle it in their bodies and structuralises it. I've been trained in the Grotowski technique and physical theatre for 15 years, to next deepen in contemporary dance. I encountered: Stanislavski technique, the basic level of the Checkov technique, basin Biomechanic, and improvisation with Steven Brook like also for many years I was working on devising performances. On the dance field, I've been learning: ballet, contact improvisation, gaga, contemporary dance, physical dance, improvisation, that chi, and Flamenco on the basic level. In my work, collaboration is one of the highest values together with ethics. I always highly respect and support the vision of the director and actors by developing common body language and reality specific for the play. I’m always bringing a lot of ideas and inspirations to the table, but I’m holding to them lightly, as in my work I’m very flexible. I’m interested and inspired by psychology, cognitive science, Tarot, Chakras- Energetic systems, painting, visual arts, lightning (which I'm frequently using in my teaching and directing), empathy, and neuroscience of perception. So far I was working on theatre performances and site-specific movement projects, however, I'm looking forward to getting experience in working with models on the photoshoots, in short, and longer movies, video-clips and other interesting projects. Besides, I love taking capturing movement on pictures and videos. I'm looking forward to creative collaborations.

  • LAMP/ Movement devisor, performerLAMP is a trio of artists form widely different fields: a dancer, a musician and a lights/video projections artist.
