Mini Bio
Waking minds through art and theatre
Quote
I believe that art, and especially theatre, are tremendous weapons to wake up sleepy or distracted minds about the true stuff that the world is made of. In my work as an artist, actress, theatre director, dramaturg, teacher and activist I put my daily energy in making this a better place. That means not only care about the content of the pieces, but also concern with the way we make it: better salaries, more contracts, respecting the working time, the time off... and experimenting ways of feminist leadership.
