Her most current research focuses on the topic of domesticity, identity construction and cultural reproduction with the aim of realizing a multicultural “living room in the public space.”

Olga Labovkina is a graduate of the Vaganova Ballet Academy’s Scientific-Creative Laboratory of the Composition of Modern Forms of Dance magistracy. She has collaborated with choreographers from around the world and is currently working as an independent choreographer with collectives in Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and Lithuania.
