Katia’s deep interest lies in exploring the connection between the body and the mind, between movement, self-being, and creativity. Bodily movement is the core language of her acting and performing projects, where movement interpretation of a spoken word is created with the physical theatre methods and dance. In terms of the dialogues, she likes to experiment with the multilingual approach. Among the themes she is interested to work with: body perceptions, limitations, gender roles and expectations, non-human entities, and finding beauty in the mundane brutality. Katia also enjoys working with site-specific and audience-driven projects.
