SUBLIMINAL LOVE-The Theater Lab-NYC-2013
Live action lecture/poem that is intended to be used as a guide to the center of our own mind, which is a maze, by evoking images that were once sacred to most cultures but now have become trivialized by linear thought and behaviour.
Recycle - Fusion Arts Museum - New York City-2011
Humans recycle their cells every day. After 7 years all the cells in our bodies, including bones, have been renewed. This is one of the characteristics that connect us with all life forms, particularly snakes, shedding their skins from time to time. Women's cycles illustrate this phenomenon clearly, which link them to the mysteries of death and renewal. Athena, the protector of civilized communities, is one of many entities that represent transformation from raw Nature into processed Culture. She is the force behind the covenant we have with the nature of life, which brings us to terms with the fact that we must kill in order to survive.

Performance based on a pre-patriarchal version of the myth of Europa & The Bull in the Aegean Sea
Janua Coeli Pt.1-TINA B Festival-Hotel Jalta-Prague - Czech Republic-2011
I collect people's wishes in a precolumbian dish. According to ancient ideas of connection between dimensions and prayer, I burn the wishes and embody the ashes, thus opening the doors between material and ethereal worlds through fire. Half way between tangible and energetic frequencies, I send people's wishes to immortality by transmuting matter into energy.
