I am choreographer and researcher who loves to be in-between the tensions or conflicting perspectives and I have my ways of being there.
On the one hand, I worked as a performer – dancer in professional companies. Together with Granhøj Dans we received two Årtes Reumert awards for the best dance performance. I collaborate with Theater CHOREA, one of the legends of engaged physical theater in Poland and many other local choreographers. In each project I trusted in energetic, physical dance. I have also created performances based solely on improvisation supported by emotions and the state of raised awareness. I try to reach with my body and movement as far as I can, looking for moments of a real meeting with my partner on stage or the audience. On the other hand, I am a researcher. I wrote the book “Dance Mind. Theater of Movement and Dance in a Neurocognitive Perspective”. Currently, I am writing a doctorate on methodologies of contemporary dance studies, performance-as-research in particular and running a research project on dancer’s attention as a creative tool.
