I'm Borbála Blaskó, dance artist, coreographer and director. Right before starting at Folkwang Hochschule I had studied classical ballet for ten years at the Hungarian Dance Academy. Besides the strict technical requirements, my ballet studies were defined by the need to learn and perform specific steps and dance forms in the most precise and perfect way possible. Beyond style, beyond the virtuosity and performance of complex and visually perfect elements I had always been interested in personal expression and performance fueled by passion and emotion. I was born into an artistic family, and theatre has always played an integral role in my everyday life - it is there when I wake up and when I go to sleep, I live my life in this medium. I also have fine artists in my ancestry, and all of my close relatives are professional artists.
