The meaning is in the material
Emotion is in the composition
And the concept is in the performer's precision
Like a sculptor, I carve the stone of the body and unravel more and more potential of the image.
I start working from the material - the dancers: I closely study their body structure and abilities, the physical intelligence of each and every one of them and the interpretations hidden in their movements.
Then, I am challenged by the modus to combine everything together (putting together soil and water will be different from putting together oil and water). Thus I start my creation - shaping the material into emotion and notion.
For many years I have been investigating the ability of the movement to become an emotion on its own.
I transform movement into action by instructing my dancers to do and then to feel. The expression is in the composition. Given my accountability as the one shaping the movement, each of my choices bears significance, and the dancer's precision and performance are an inseparable part of my choice.
Accuracy and technique
Each choreographer has their own style. But not every style relies on technique.
I aspire to maximize the boundaries of my work and the dancers through technique. When all dancers use the same language, the world on stage becomes unified and reliable in the eyes of the viewers. This is the scaffold enabling me to connect the viewers with the substance, feeling and concept of the piece.
I use a technique to which I gave the name "twists" – resistance between two different sources of energy. The body's ability to move in this condition is tense, alert, struggling and energetic yet has its own vision, operates with inertia once the tension is released. Like the tension within a spring device, striving to switch from one movement to the other, swiftly and abruptly.
For me, accuracy is a value that stands on its own.
Accuracy will transform the piece into a statement, a premise – there lies the communication.
I wish to courageously strength the awareness and acceptance that dance is an abstract media that should not be put into words or textualized. When it is good, it is purified as a formula and then it finds its direct way inwards.
