I am a dancer, choreographer, performer and teacher. I was born in Lublin, Poland however spent some time of my life in the USA, Mexico and travelling across Europe, recently moved to Scotland. My degree is in cultural management. In 2002-2017 I worked with Hanna Strzemiecka and Anna Zak as a member of Lublin University of Technology Contemporary Dance Group and participated in a number of international workshops; in 2015 I completed a Choreography Course with Iwona Olszowska in Cracow at "Hurtownia Ruchu" School. As a teacher I collaborated with Lublin Dance Theatre carrying out dance educational programs for schools in 2011-2017. My aim is to develop own dance and movement language, to combine dance and theatre with visual arts. In 2015-2016 I created two solo pieces.
I performed with Lublin University of Technology Contemporary Dance Group and collaborated with e.g. Agrupación Señor Serrano, Compagnia Tpo, Lander Patrick, Barbora Latálová, Johannes Wieland, Lukasz Witt-Michalowski.
Last year I've worked with Neslihan Tepehan from Edinburgh College of Art, who is researching non-verbal and non-representational bodily interactions with the objects. You can also find me performing with 'Edinburgh Collaboration' Group of independent artists and doing workshops at the Cowdenhill Community Center in Bo'ness.
