about me

Denitsa Dikova is a choreographer and dancer in the field of instant composition and improvisation.

Her skills in instant composition, the combination of movement, sound and light create works of depth and character for everyone who is looking for more perspectives, as well as for unfolding their imagination.

 

In order to single out her own individual approach, technique and way of movement shaping her style, she explores different dance styles and techniques: contemporary dance, improvisation, contact improvisation, release, yoga, martial arts. Against this background, she adds her skills and interest in photography, using photographic composition as a basis. Her aim is to reveal detail and multilayers through merging all of the above.

 

After graduating, she started working as a freelance artist. Looking for different approaches to work, together with her colleagues, she set up the non-governmental organisation Garage Collective in Bulgaria which continues to explore the principles of collective authorship. She goes on with her creative work following the same course in Barcelona, ​​where, together with Gloria Ros, she explores the techniques of instant composition.

 

Presently, she is interested in both solo projects and collaborations with artists from different spheres of art, dancers, choreographers, musicians, composers, visual artists, costume makers, stage designers, etc.

 

Raised in a family of an actor father and a librarian mother, she has been strongly influenced by different styles of art. Some of the main features shaping her work are silence, concentration, tranquility, dedication to the profession and appreciation of teamwork.
