ABOUT ALEKSANDRA RUDNICKA
"I am not a person who can spend hours and days in a studio just to find the right movement that expresses what I want to say. I am a restless soul that creates spontaneously and intuitively, often in the most inconvenient situations. The movement flows through my body and becomes that what words cannot frame.
In my dance works I take my audience seriously, also the children. I encourage the audience to become active spectators that interpret and create their own experience of what they see, based on their life experience and imagination. The dance work does not exist within me, but in the meeting between my body and soul, and the audience.”
Aleksandra Rudnicka works as dancer and choreographer, with Karlstad as her working base. She regularly makes projects in other cities of Sweden and abroad, and her projects often unite the social and artistic dimensions of dance. Aleksandra Rudnicka creates dance works that can be booked by theatres, enterprises and schools, but also commissioned works for openings and other cultural events. She gives lectures about the art of dance and workshops that are based on the movement analysis of Rudolf Laban.
