Amsterdam , Netherlands

Performance artist in the field of Dance & Contact Improvisation. I studied Dance and theater Improvisation in Israel at “Hakvuza beyafo” and “play school for Improvisation”. After finishing my studies I moved to Amsterdam where I had the privilege to work, learn and be inspired by great teachers of dance and contact Improvisation – Paulien de Groot, David Zambrano and Karl Frost amongst others.

In the last years I perform and give workshops on the technique of Improvisation in Dance and Contact. A couple of years ago I chose Amsterdam as my base and co founded with 5 other performance artists the group – Mono Collective that performs anchored and open improvisation pieces as well as choreographed pieces.

For me, Improvisation is a way of life and I try to take it out of the studio into everyday life. I believe that the core of man spirit comes from new experiences, and that it is much more important to be open and present, than to make plans and try to stick to them.
