Founder of International сulture project "Art-Residence" and «ZERO Dance Gallery»
Sphere of interest is in choreography, contemporary theatre, and integration of choreography, sculpture and video. Curatorial practice over the past years is also devoted to the study of transition from one medium into another, searching for common codes of different artistic positions.
I focus on the boundary zones between different media, searching for different types of information in both artistic and curatorial practice, which I devote equal time and attention.
Graduated from Dance and Art school and the Technical University. Studied at the "Class of expressive dance" by Gennady Abramov, Moscow. Fellow of danceWeb program, 2004, Vienna.

Since 2009 start active work in contemporary art and became an idea creator and curator of several contemporary art festivals and exhibitions. For several years run contemporary art centre in Moscow.
"In my artistic work I try to find different paths of collaboration with dancers, musicians, artists during the time of producing a common idea and material for a new work.
I understand the creative team as sum of individuals, but strongly related to some common energy. To find this important connection everybody has to be open and very attentive at the same time. If it became possible, every moment of common experience opens new unexpected ways of living and creation.
For me it is important to be able to work in a relaxed atmosphere leading to concentration and inspiration provided by the place of work. In my opinion, the image that can be applied to artists who move from one place to another is a bee collecting pollen and nectar of information and carrying it to another place, both pollinating new processes and transforming the nectar in honey of the new art"
