Educated in the theatre academies of Sofia and Shanghai, I started my practice with two poetry collections transformed into live spoken-word shows, followed by five theatre plays. Since 2014 I’ve been working on NUTRICULA, a physical performance research which represents a growing archive of solo works interpreted by performers from different backgrounds and produced and presented in various locations around the world: Shanghai, Vilnius, Lisbon.
