Barbara Kukovec is an actress, a performer and a dancer who has recently diversified into visual media and especially photography. She is a graduate of the Ljubljana Academy of Theatre and has a Master’s degree in performance from Goldsmiths College (2006) in London. On the basis of her integrated approach to whatever theme she is dealing with, we always expect (and get) from her an entirely unique and expressive performance. The ability to reach new heights on both the individual and collective level also characterizes Barbara’s work in the Via Negativa pieces Starting Point: Anger, More, Would Would Not, Viva Verdi, and Four Deaths. In these performances, she shows an extraordinarily strong physical presence that erases the border between the subject of the performance and performance of the subject.
