Biologically from Russia, I can conceived and born in Cuba, raised in Cyprus, lived and loved in Moscow, London, Berlin, New York and currently Amsterdam. I joined CYFI on October 1st - my mother's birthday and the day my ex boss, mentor, friend, and one of the most wonderful visionary human beings in the world I consider very dear to me, Olafur Eliasson sent me an edition of his art work. This was a special day worthy of celebration. Amongst the many many things I learned from Olafur, one that I hold dearest to me is the importance of dance. Each day alive is a celebration, where mind and body activate in a dance to the rhythms of life.The other, that that life is like a river, it constantly flows, happening in tides, rhythms. To tune into those, accept the flow and flow with it, and via it activate others along the way is really the secret to happy living, prosperity and success. We are after all, all made of the same substance - vibrations. The third thing is sharing. Whatever I do, I know, I am I share onto others I am very excited to share all that I have picked up along my way with my current colleagues, new friends and future partners.
Breakdancing has always fascinated me. Having spent two years in New York, I spent much time in the subway stations at Union Square observing the local break dance crews, how their bodies jerked and popped and twisted in what seemed imposible ways - it looked like magic! Prior to his successful artist career, Olafur was a champion breakdancer, winning competitions at the tender age of 14 in his homeland of Denmark. For my challenge I want to make my fantasy of learing how to breakdance a reality. I would like to travel to Ethhiopia in December to spend a week learning this art from local Ethiopian children so that they can activate me by sharing their physical dance knowlegde with me. In turn I will activate them and share my CYFI knowledge with them. This way we can actiavte each other and together compose a money dance :)
