IF ONLY YOU COULD TOUCH ME Participatory Performance at BcmA Gallery, Berlin, 2024

'IF only you could touch me' is a participatory performance where the importance of physical tangible connection is put to the test in the era of digital intimacy. The audience is invited to sit on a chair, close their eyes and listen to an audio narration of a text that the artist wrote. The text is a simulating narrative about the power of touch. Some of the participants were touched, some other were not. As a live experiment it was interesting to see if the ones that weren't touched felt like they missed something or the power of visualization is just enough. What feelings the touch and the absence of it can create and what is the relationship between body memory and mind?

DEVOURING TRANSIENCE Performance at Mitte Museum, Berlin, 2023

A visceral exploration of the concept of impermanence and its emotional impact through movement, stillness and nonverbal vocal expression. The historical Mitte Museum reminiscent of Nazi time functions as the perfect backdrop for the examination of the relationship between space, time, the audience and the performer.

FADE IN2 ME Performance at GlogauAIR, Berlin, 2023

Valeda - Fade in2 me
The performance explores the sweet melancholy of longing.
Reflecting on the current understanding of intimacy and often lack of emotional expression, the idea is built on the contradictory feelings of desire and fear.
How can we crave something we have never felt before?

SURRENDER Durational Performance at Localize, Potsdam, 2022

‘I AM TIRED OF FORCING MYSELF TO BE SOMETHING THAT I AM NOT:
I GIVE UP.’
The above recorded phrase is playing from a speaker close to the performer. He is tied with ropes onto a chair placed in the middle of a highlighted square on the floor. The viewers are witnesses of an experiment. They can go as close as the want or they can watch from far; reflecting on their own existence, free will and the idea of surrender.

ADJURE Group Performance at Culterim Gallery, Berlin, 2022

Adjure is a site-specific performance/installation piece. The performance took place in an underground bunker and was designed to take visitors on a journey of intense human compositions. Nine performers were isolated and trapped in separate rooms, each infused with a desire to escape that created a sense of urgency and action. The performance builds to a crescendo, with the visitors becoming fully immersed in the intense and emotional experience.
