"LEXIC-ON" performance is created on the basis of nine musical and dance miniatures and improvisations. In each of them a word stands and the personal decision for its meaning. They build three story parts, approaching the overall structure of the performance to the structure of the genre "haiku" – the shortest form of poetry in world literature, having the clarity, completeness, and even the emptiness of one music note.
"Lexic-on" performance translates the happening of dance, sound and language into a personal interpretation. Not the expression of something but its existence.
"My personality is a conductor to structural units of language with their meanings. I feel free to use them, choosing to move with the music, to create music, to seek my own rhythm, a story which I can share with the purity and simplicity of my sense, deep, such as it is, without changing things with clarity and completeness of the decisions that come from my imagination."
