My interests in performance expression include bending the stereotypical gender roles, female masculinity and sustainable living using humour and sarcasm as a tool to express my views. I am a graduate of the performance art course by Latvian Performance Art Centre, where I have discovered my abilities to work with my voice and body.
Another interest of mine is stand-up comedy, as I am a part of a crew of women stand-up comedians in Latvia.
