Erika Tsimbrovsky is a dancer/choreographer/multidisciplinary artist, with three decades of experience of collaboratively creating artwork with diverse communities. She is multicultural and multilingual and has lived and practiced in six countries. Tsimbrovsky practice coalesces somatic (bodily) explorations, visual art principles, and tools of movement and improvisation in both theatre and dance, resulting in experimental dance/art installation that she calls “asemic”— in other words “outside of normative understanding.” She explores new ways to engage the public as an active observer of performance.
The projects she is creating are highly collaborative, emphasizing community diversity and equal opportunities for each person involved in the creative process. Tsimbrovsky’s current research focuses on contemporary inclinations towards performance art with communities in the art/dance field. Objects of her inquiry include: dance installations, ®evolutionary arts, somatic feminisms, notions of otherness, and the generation of engaged local communities.
