« A performance for five women about the themes of identity, reality ans sexual fantasy. The performer’s eyes with black velvet masks and works with the standing and lying positions of the body in order to create “ballet” variations around emotional and sexual relationships, in which power plays a major role. The four “velvetians”, accompanied by an equally masked “velvetian” DJ, evolve in a satirical, expressionist, frivolous yet austere world in which velvet, skin, nacre, gold and glitter collide. » (M.M)

She also took part to the dance project called “Kill the baby-Saved the Food”, created by the “Post Partum Company”. Awarded at the XIV Edition of the Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean, in Skopje Macedonia (2009).

Dj Lolita plays as a chef conductor.” (JB.B)
