MIRIAM BUDZÁKOVÁ

Miriam Budzáková was born in a city Žilina, well known for its football fan’s team Šošoni, in the northern part of Slovakia. At the age of 4 she was put in a gymnastics club by an input of her mother, whose wish was to be become a dancer. Miriam surprisingly with not so much interest managed to stay in the field of gymnastics until her 15 years, after/until she attended conservatory where she started to study different types of dances. Today she is very happy for those 11 years of gymnastics, because she learned lots of tricks which she can now use in her dance practise. In 2021 she graduated from the Dance Theatre and Performance department at Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava (Bc.) and will soon (2022) graduate from SEAD Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance.

 

In her own works she flows around contemporary dance and performance art, where she currently finds many possibilities and stimulus for creating. She is currently focusing on creating sustainable artistic practices in which she tries to find and create different kinds of ecosystems. Most of her performative and creative practice is on creating site-specific performances. In her works, she often proposes a dialog between ecology and human body. In addition to those, she is as well interested in other forms of creating and performing, especially those that are peculiar and unconventional, those that usually lift your eyebrow.
