I hate clichés.
I really hate clichés.
I dread the "too obvious" and I am drawn towards the abstract.
Visually I prefer the imperfect and the rough to the symmetrical and neat.
Therefore I'm exploring my own unique ways of expressing the themes I'm dealing with.
I'm a performance artist. I'm creating interdisciplinary stage performances.
I thrive at transferring ideas, visions, words, images and energy.
Preferably in a provocative, non-main stream way.
I'm interested in shaking stagnant concepts and patterns of thinking and in creating
new forms of discourse.
I'm aiming at integrating the personal, the social and the political and at bringing them together as an inseparable unit, an interconnected one.
Mica was Born 1971, Tel-Aviv, Israel.
She lives and works in Tel-Aviv and Tiruvanamalai, India.
Mica studied acting in 'Bet- Zvi- School for Performing Arts' during the years 1995-1998.
She worked as an actress in 'Hakameri Theatre'-Tel-Aviv's municipal theater in the years 1998-2003, and in 'Tmuna Theatre'- Tel-Aviv's main fringe theatre- in the years 2001-2005.
Over the past years she devised and performed the following pieces:

2010 - 'Voice Over'.
2008 - 'Transparent Packaging'.
2007 - '15 minutes starting now' (in cooperation with Alit Kreiz).
In her works she deals with themes such as attachment to objects and ideas, getting free of the control of the mind, the course of time, memories, synchronicity, and the collective vis-a-vis the individual.
Her upcoming work is called ' Shameful Occurrences, Disturbing Facts, Light and Darkness'. It is a political stage performance about the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, and is a critical commentary on the policies of Israel, the Israeli army, and the Israeli settlers.
Mica lives in Tel-Aviv and Tiruvannamalai throughout the year. In Tiruvannamalai she's working with a group of amateur actors with whom she creates performance art works. Her vision is to work with deprived village women, offering them workshops and creating with them socially oriented performances.
