Hi there, I'm Daria! I graduated from ArtEZ University of Arts as a Bachelor of Dance in 2022, and currently, I work as a freelance dancer, performer, dance teacher, and choreographer. Since 2021, I've had the pleasure of collaborating with Cecilia Moisio on various projects such as "REVOLT" at MAAS Theater en Dans in Rotterdam, and "PINK PORTAL" in Amsterdam (2022-23). In the spring of 2023, I collaborated with MENSJA for the first time during the research phase for the future creation "On The Edge" (2024).

My passion lies in being a part of projects that evoke emotions and bring about positive change. I've always struggled to confine myself to one artistic discipline; my creativity flourishes when I can pour my entire being—body, voice, and mind—into my work, whether it's through dance, speaking, or visual storytelling.

For me, being an artist is about embracing the raw, unfiltered essence of humanity and the overwhelming power of nature. It means keeping my heart open to the beauty, intensity, vulnerability, and honesty of human experiences.

As I continue to evolve as an artist, my goal is to capture the essence of human stories and the vitality of nature while staying true to my authentic self. Through my art, I hope to touch people, provoke thought, and inspire change.

My tip for the world is: Keep your heart open.
