bio

"My favourite scenery to explore is a street with its dense layers of left behind marks. I like dark, rhythmical environments where I dance to realise, and realise to dance as I've never done before. I mix personal sensation-fragments with anonymous movements into a dance of universal truths and reflex patterns. Although I am made of it, I revolt against capitalism; I support freedom of expression and liberal thinking in individual rights aspects. I believe dance is boundless, multifaceted ways part of all existence and it’s for us to recognise its choreography. I create art to incite unambiguous thinking, to remind us of the indispensable things in life.”
