I am an embodiment artist, dancer, and choreographer.
My physical training started with fencing. As a teenager I trained in athletics (100 meters) and horseback riding.
I was introduced to dance by Kama Jankowska and Witold Jurewicz.
In 2005 I joined the Alter Dance Theatre. Between 2005 and 2008 I trained in the Jurewicz Movement Technique, and danced with Alter until 2010, performing in “The Claw”, “What Would You Do if You Could Do What You Can’t Do…”, “Shitty Dance Shitty”, “And What…” and “Lovers”. Alongside I was exploring improvisation and Contact Improvisation, and integrating my interpreting skills into the translation of the language of dance.
My collaborations include, among others, Nigel Charnock (“Happy”), Jacek Owczarek (Pracownia Fizyczna, “Zdarzenia”), Tomasz Rodowicz and Robert M. Hayden (Chorea, Bacchantes, “Oratorium Dance Project”), and Rafał Dziemidok (Koncentrat, “Nut. Squirrel.”).
I hold a Master of Arts in the English Philology, Specialisation: Conference Interpreting (Department of Translation Studies, Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland), a Postgraduate Degree in Cultural Management (Collegium of World Economy, Warsaw School of Economics, Poland), and a Master of Arts in Contemporary Dance Education (Department of Contemporary and Classical Dance, Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts, Germany). My latest M.A. thesis “Stimulating Internal Core Support Through Developmental Movement Patterns” researched into the reawakening of the navel space radiation. Since September 2014 I have been studying the body-mind relationship within the Body-Mind Centering® Certification Program.
I taught dance and English at several institutions of higher education in Poland (Dance Department of Academy of Languages and Economy, and Department of Choreography and Dance Techniques of Academy of Music in Łódź; Dance Department of University of Arts and Sciences in Kielce; Department of English Studies, Faculty of Pedagogy and Fine Arts of Adam Mickiewicz University in Kalisz).
In the last several years I have been developing BACK HOME practice, working with acting students (Acting Department of the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts and BA Theatre of the Zurich University of the Arts), and creating embodiment-motivated performances. My recent works are “Still Here” and “Sushuma”. Asking “What do I know that I have forgotten that I know?”, I have been researching into Oneness.
