Alena Ageeva

I'm Alena Ageeva, dance artist and performer graduated as pantomime and physical theatre director, recently moved to Edinburgh from Russia.

The main directions of my research are site-specific dance performances, interaction/participatory practices and inclusive dance. My creative method is based on dance improvisation, somatic approach, Butoh and pantomime. I had my own physical theatre company (PosleSlov) and we brought three shows at the Fringe in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

For the last three years I've been working as an independent dance artists and have been developing dance approach to museum study and practiced multi-sensory tours in museums and galleries. These tours (dance art-mediations) are based on personal physical and emotional experience from visiting a museum and interacting with art objects through movement improvisation, somatic practices and dance. I also led the sensory/dance walks in the city spaces. I would like to introduce these practices for the Scottish audiences and deepen and expand it here.
