In movement practice, Irina is fascinated with the forms around and forms that her body can create in the space. Irina explores the connection between modern architecture, external structures, interior design, and geometrical ways of movement.  As a dancer, she won prizes at various battles and competitions; was a participant and judge of different festivals worldwide; taught others through the course “Geometry in our bodies.” Irina expresses her vision through stage or site-specific performances, photography, video works, and commercials for brands.
