About Tonya Sheina
I studied acting in Moscow at Russian University of Theatre Arts. After finishing my study I joined repertoir theatre in Moscow Malaya Bronnaya Theatre in 2007 at the same time discover contact improvisation. I've been regularly practicing Contact Improvisation since then, participating in workshops and festivals including Contact Improvisation Festivals in Moscow, Italy and Israel. From 2011 till present I work with Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company as a performer, teacher and director. I'm very interest in Contact Improvisation as it allow to compose instantly using a very rich movement material, that relates to our everyday 'ordinary' life in a metaphoric way.
