“For me every performance is a personal investigation into certain states and conditions that a human is subjected to. It is a chance to cross borders and redefine connections between people through transpersonal symbolism of movement, presence and space awareness.
I am fascinated with the collective imagination. By analyzing my own cultural background and its consequences, I attempt to create pieces that are rather transcultural in a sense of being emotionally recognized by any human in spite of the background or individual purposes.
In my opinion, the participatory, emotional response, a sort of awakening is what becomes very important nowadays, both in arts and in daily life. To accomplish the vital redefinition of “what makes us human”
I propose to look for common ground between us, to be aware, to reevaluate and to act upon”.
