Earth in me

Both in dance and in aesthetic perception, I was influenced and shaped a lot by trips and residencies in Morocco, Turkey, Japan, India, Uzbekistan, Iran and Indonesia, where I studied dance and music. However, the influences were always mixed with my Moravian roots.


Playing piano and percussion gave me a certain musicality, very valuable for dance.  Perhaps the biggest influence for me was my partner - a musician Hearn Gadbois, then dancer Sashar Zarif and a long line of inspiring teachers of improvisation and composition (Sandra Reeve, Suprapto Suryodarmo, Daniel Lepkoff, David Zambrano, Kirstie Simson, Smadar Emor, Ruth Zappora, Julyen Hamilton and many others).
