Statement:
My work (comments both stage and digital) centers around themes of otherness, womanhood, feminism, power dynamics and vulnerability. I am influenced by surrealism and science fiction and often engage the audience by inviting them on stage or choosing a non-traditional venue and format for my work. Mylar reflective material and custom lighting are integral part of my most recent stage, video, and photography work. I research gesture and emotion in the body seeking potential for meaning. I’ve performed for Eiko & Koma, Boris Charmatz, Cie. Willy Dorner, Lionel Popkin, Group Motion and others.

My dance films have been shown across the U.S. and in Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Bulgaria, Ireland and Bangladesh. I am also a supporter for a sustainable dance community and am deeply invested in helping further conversation and collaboration. I teach improvisation technique for performance, dance on camera and composition and have done so in Philadelphia, France, Hungary and my native Bulgaria. I also write occasionally for thINKingDANCE.net.
