My work is based on a permanent construction and deconstruction of forms and aesthetics understood in a traditional way. Interested in the contrasts and dualities I fuse them looking for the fragility of an ugly beautifulness or a beautiful ugliness.

In a daily practice I use training that combines aerobics, coordination, rhythm and involves equally body and mind. As a base for the movement research I propose observation of one's own and else's body.

The improvisation is for me a tool and/or a goal to the creation.

I question phenomena related to a contemporary individual: lack of roots, temporariness, “fragmentation” and an aspiration to the synchronicity, surfeit of choice and its effects on the individual. I dedicate a part of my reflection and research to explore the empathy and ability to share. Performance-wise,  I’m especially interested in activating the spectator’s senses and encourage them to take conscious decisions about the level of participation in the creation and reception of the performance. 

For last 3 years, I’m seduced by the installation and (handi)craft. The process of construction and the time dedicated to it, finally, the material and its existence in the space interests me as a base or the booster for the composition.
