Dancer – Performer

In her dancing, Paula likes to change her movement qualities from soft to sharp, from a flow to a constantly interrupted pattern. She loves to surprise herself.

Paula is continually exploring the limits of her body and works on stretching them more and more. She likes to run and jump and “throw herself“ into movements as well as to work on precision and details like the facial expression.

Paula’s dancing is highly influenced by floor work techniques that she professionalised by working with among others Luke Jessop, Winston Reynolds (Yeknom), Mate Meszaros and Ricardo Ambrozio.
