Aleksandra Borys

Aleksandra Borys is an art and science artist working in the fields of choreography, video, installation, astronomy, astrology, cosmology, mythology and ecology. Her work looks at the human body, environment, Earth, and Universe and asks what kind of choreography and dance happens between them. She is interested in looking at Earth from a distance, and she wonders how this perspective changes the way life on our planet is approached. She wonders how the concepts of ecological art, of art as activism, and choreography as an art, can create contemporary social ceremonies to help individuals deal with the multiple crises on Earth. Aleksandra received in 2016 a Master of Art and Science from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts in London; in 2009 a BA in Contemporary Dance from CODARTS, University of the Arts in Rotterdam; in 2003 she graduated from National Ballet School in Lodz. In 2015 she received The Research Scholarship by Grazyna Kulczyk.
