Alica Minar is a Slovak choreographer and performer based in Berlin and Prague. On the basis of her artistic research she is looking for an intensive physical experience for the audience.
Her works offer strong visuality, where abstraction and narration go hand in hand. In her creations, she intuitively searches for humor and poetry that arise through bizarre situations. She is committed to research burning yet omitted aspects of difficult societal topics and dissect them together with the audience.
In recent years, she has intensively researched the relationship between body and objects on the basis of principles of dance and clowning.
