“I consider the arts a basic link in the process of building community and society. As a choreographer and dancer that lives in a contemporary world I explore my personal reality as a woman whose life is affected by cultural heritage but also by global information, technology and all the movement in time, space. and energy.
The dialogue and contrast between movement, sound, music, gesture, voice and context are important elements in the development of my creations. I am interested in multidisciplinary works and I pursue the collaboration with artists from different cultural backgrounds that work with performing and visual arts.”
