Ana Kavalis & Jeff Gburek

Born in Havana, Cuba, Ana Kavalis is a performer, dancer, actor and educator who has been based in Berlin since 2004. Her artistic career has the distinctive mark of crossing borders, the disruption of theatrical stage language, the experimentation with new forms of dialogue and exchange with the audience and the continuous questioning of identity. Her work is developed on the terrain of physical theater, dance and performance. In Berlin, she has collaborated with several theater and dance groups. The long-term collaboration with the Djalma Primordial Science group, created by the dancer Ephia Gburek and the musician Jeff Gburek, has significantly influenced her development as a solo performer. Since 2006, she has been developing her own solo performances:  Eurydike – eine Anatomie des Schattens (2006/2007), Penthesilea (2009), Lilith im Spiegel (2010/2011), Das Meer hinter der Mauer (2012), Qui se cache dans ce corps? (2016/2017). 
Jeff Gburek is a multi-instrumentalist, sound designer & composer who has performed throughout Europe and the USA. He uses prepared guitar, radios, magnetic field antennae, theremin, the manipulation of organic objects, sound automatons & special microphones to bridge formal music & environmental sound sources, bringing multiple dimensions of sound into consciousness. He has worked with butoh dancer Ephia and studied with Min Tanaka and Kazuo Ohno and built his own gamelan mini-orchestra after traveling in Java and Bali. He collaborates with different musicians in Berlin including Michael Vorfeld, Tetuzi Akiyama & Keith Rowe of AMM. He has performed at Unidram Festival in Potsdam, Ad Libitem Festival in Warsaw, FRIV Festival in Poznan. He currently leads workshops offers private lessons on improvised music, acoustic ecology and field recording at Ko.orking Muzyczyny, Poznan.
