Born and raised in Poland, Marta started dancing aged 11 in her local dance studios. After moving to London in 2013, she studied Musical Theatre at Leyton Sixth Form College and joined Tavaziva Youth, led by artistic director Bawren Tavaziva and his company members. During that time, her passion for contemporary dance developed and she performed at various locations including Lift Off Dance Festival and The Place. In 2015, Marta had an invaluable experience creating a short physical theatre piece for the Barbican Box Project, presented at the Barbican Theatre. In 2019, she attained BA Hons in Dance Performance at Middlesex University, where she co-directed a student led piece for Arts Depot, and received the Lucy Graham Dance Award for her achievements. Most recently, she was part of Watkins Dance Associates, working under the guidance of Anna Watkins and learning from many inspiring artists. Marta is delighted to be joining EDGE for their 2020 season.
