“ My work has been evolving from 2003 up today in a way that dancing movements served the realization of an upward movement that was gradually branching off to the state of rest. It was in fact estranged to the ordinary earthy things and was steering instead along to the heavenward… The movements are the outcome of a long-term and intensive interaction with the natural environment, with rocks, heights, rough grounds, trees, winds storms and they become of a certain kind.
It was inevitable to develop a certain personal and personified repertoire of movements because all of the movements are subjected to the natural elements and forces and not to any purposiveness that induced stereotypes of a certain kind. Dancing in the outside space implies a confrontation with dangers leading to a freedom of expression which I hope is visualized”
