alisa popova Alisa is currently inspired and driven by the infinite depths AND inherent limitations of the human mind. she is influenced by her dedication to uncovering layers of the Self. alisa is Russian and grew up in post-soviet Ukraine. She got her BA with a major in dance at UW in 2010, and has since been slowly DISCOVERING that making art, in particular live performance, is inexplicably inevitable in her life, and often feels like art just “happens” to her, kind of like puking.
Alisa's work is largely influenced by her search for the truth through the exploration and subsequent shedding of the mind and ego, usually deals with surprise and juxtaposition, and ends up being unintentionally comedic and/or dark.
