Penkova.cc is innitiated by and centered around works and collaborations of the Swedish dance-artist Liza Penkova.
Penkova’s work is movement-based combining dance aesthetics, didactics and eastern healing practices.
In 2019, she starts working on a series of dance solos “18 steps (through dance history)” and ” Dancer on a tightrope”. Collaboration is important in her work and she is one of the original members and initiators of cross-disciplinary collectives “House of Bertha” and “PhD in one night ”. She is also a co-creator of the “Silent song-practice” together with the Korean artist Sue Yeon Youn.
Educated at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and P. A. R. T. S , Penkova’s professional path starts as a dancer at the Gothenburg ballet company. Shortly after she joins the Rosas dance company/ A-T De Keersmaeker in Brussels where she works for the next ten years. Curious about the work of the freelance choreographers Penkova eventually works with Georgia Vardarou/Kunst-Werk (GR/BE), Veli Lehtovaara (FI),Helena Franzén(SE), Human Works (NO/BE) and Michèle Noiret (BE).
Since September 2019 she follows an MA in contemporary dance didactics at SKH-Stockholm University of the Arts in Stockholm.
