HIGHLIGHTS OF PAST WORKS:
Persistence of Identity
This work was inspired by themes in psychodynamic psychology and visual art of Salvador Dali, specifically the painting, “Persistence of Memory.” Solo work choreographed and performed by Alina Sotskova, premiered at London Flux Festival 2015.
This work for 6 dancers explored topics of experience of concussions at both neural level (the impact on and behaviour of different brain cells, such as neurons and glial cells) and the psychological level (the personal experience of a person with a concussion). We consulted people with lived experience of concussions during the process of work development. Dancers who are double trained in dance and in neuroscience took part in this project.
The two narratives were told simultaneously through dance. This work premiered at Universe of the Brain event in 2017.
This contemporary ballet duet explored topics of relationship experiences and conflicts and was informed by psychoanalytic theories of human relationships, particularly by psychological theories and research that pertain to interpersonal dynamics, aggression, attachment, and projection. Choreographed by Alina Sotskova and premiered at “Morph” in 2013.
