LoveBox 2018

July 18, 2018

Last weekend marked another edition of London’s own Lovebox Festival.

Throughout the sun-drenched weekend, I was there to spread the hoop love.

Hands up to all the artists and crew involved in the festival, that was a great weekend.

Lots of LOVE.

Kali

January 9, 2018

A celebration of the intoxicating, wild feminine and the divine, creative power of Shakti.

‘Kali’ is a highly-skilled, sophisticated and sassy performance that combines dance and hula hooping with the latest, cutting-edge LED technology. Custom illuminating colours, patterns and graphics are delivered on stage in conjunction with seamless movements and choreography, to create an unforgettable, multi-dimensional visual experience. Drawing inspiration from Hindu mythology and African music, Silvia channels the Tantric Goddess of love and destruction in a fast-paced, psychedelic act that aims at inspiring women to embrace their inner wilderness and creative power.

Performed in ‘Club Briefs’, Underbelly Festival 2017, London.

Filmed and edited by Infinite Ear.

Very special thanks to Briefs Factory, the Box London and the wonderful Koh Phangan. Photos above were taken from another exhilarating run of Club Briefs, at Kempinski Seychelles Resort, Mahe Island, October 2017.

‘Gynoid’ Photoshoot

January 1, 2013

In ‘Gynoid’ I’m exploring movement and manipulation, as well as the relation between the machine and the human body, through hula hoops.

How is our body affected by the props and tools, that we use every day? If our body is the main tool, the machine, what can influence and radically transform its appearance and purpose?

All photos were taken by Jonathan Green, at Mowlem Studios, London. The following shot got us a feature on Hooping.org, the online hub for the worldwide hooping community.

You can watch the trailer for ‘Gynoid’ on my Vimeo page here.

Many thanks to Jonathan Green and Damian Pajak for doing such a great job and making it a  really good fun experience too.
