Hungry Hearts

Key words:

I’ve talked with Eva Urbanova - dancer, choreographer, dance maker who was one of the residents taking part on this year Coaching Residencies about her work on the piece which she recently presented as her final work on HAMU ( Academy of Performing arts - Music and Dance department). We've dwelled into the process of her work and topics she was addressing in her work together with eight performers coming from different backgrounds.
