Andrea Tušimová

Andrea graduated at dance conservatory and later, at VŠMU with a focus on modern dance (2021). While studying at VŠMU, she participated in the international Erasmus+ program at the National Academy of Theater Arts in Kraków - Department of Dance Theater, where she began to develop the areas of her further work (2020). She finished her studies with a diploma thesis where she focused on the development of structured improvisation based on stimulus of fine arts under the guidance of professor Marta Poláková. As a teacher, she led dance and movement courses Tancuj drahá, Telohra for youth and adults and workshops for conservatories. He currently works at the Július Kowalski Elementary Art School in Bratislava, where she teachs modern dance and creative movement classes. He is a certified instructor of the Port de bras exercise. In her classes, in addition to the technical side, she tries to build the power of self-expression in the participants through improvisation and to find individual freedom in movement. In addition to teaching practice, she is also engaged in performances in collaboration with movement and visual artists (Johana Pocková and Sabina Bočková – Jáma lvová, Lucia Gamanová – Matter in place, Maja Štefančíková – Close encounters, Petra Hudcová – Parallels). In her author's work, she is fascinated by the transition of movement into conceptual art forms in the form of performative situations, actions and happenings with a reference to the socio-societal context. Direct contact with the viewer is important to her. Therefore, she likes to move the performance to the public space (Festival OFF - Gentle borders, Pragovka Gallery - What is our impact? Courtyard of the SNG – (Lukáš Procházka and Dušan Chmeliar) – Waiting for the opening of the new SNG). She currently applies his management and PR skills in the artistic collective mimoOs and in the TELOHRA project, where he oversees the production and promotion of year-round activities.
