PLACE – QUINTA TEN CHI – Sintra
I am dancer, dance-teacher, performance-artist and bodyworker made in Finland, but currently based in Berlin, India, and nomadic temporary moments in time and space. I graduated from TEAK 2008 as dance- and theatre-teacher (MA)
I have been teaching contact and dance since 15 years all around the world.
For me dance is combination of technique and intuition. Form and freedom. Being and doing. I try to find ways to explore and teach technique by understanding the underlying principles of movement.
I am a performance artist, dancer and a dance teacher in the field of Dance & Contact Improvisation.
After finishing my studies in Israel I moved to Amsterdam and co-founded with 5 other performance artists the group – Mono Collective that performs free and anchored Dance pieces.
In the last years I have been performing and giving workshops on the techniques of Improvisation in Dance and Contact.
I have been teaching contact and dance for over 15 years all around the world, on internationally acknowledged festivals and dance trainings.
All of the above are just words that are saying basically: Dance is my passion and I love to share it with everyone.
I am a dancer and researcher in the area of Conscious Movement and Contact Improvisation, dedicating myself to dance since I was a child.
I was trained in classical and contemporary dance techniques by the National Conservatory of Portugal and performed with independent companies and collectives around the world.
I directed artistic projects and residencies, as well as retreats, workshops and gatherings, having today around twenty years of professional experience as a teacher, choreographer and space holder.
I am centered on the theme “Self-Awareness towards the Collective Field”. I believe, having seen many evidences, that dancing frees and promotes self-confidence, willingness and curiosity to interact, thus blossoming our potential of Being… whole, fluid, with spontaneity and focus… Presence.
