Natalia Pieczuro / Fighting Monkey
Performer, dancer and teacher.
Natalia rooted herself with Fighting Monkey practice, and in SEAD, graduating with a double diploma in choreography and performance. Since 2006, she has been following the Fighting Monkey path. This gave an axis to her teaching and life. As pedagogue she is motivated by an urge for movement – as consequence of being alive – and by endless will to share. Her teaching is totally based on FM practice and reaches dancers, actors, circus and sports people and all movers.

She got married somewhere in Switzerland with a man who can carry on his shoulders more than 100kg. She can cook a whole dinner for 17 persons, and she can have 3 espressos in a row. A collector of: animal bones – especially golden dragons – complex fragrances, aromatic herbs, stones and rocks.
She has knowledge in: how to grow a plant from a single leaf, hip hop music from 1992 to 2010, inner and outer order, anthropology of culture. Believes in the logic of the universe. Likes to walk slowly, terribly slowly since it reminds her that time doesn’t exist, and that presence is to be somewhere.
Performer, dancer, teacher, also known as the “polish hammer”. Rooted herself with FM practice, and in SEAD, graduating with a double diploma in choreography and performance. Since 2006, she has been following the Fighting Monkey path. This gave an axis to her teaching and life.
As a pedagogue, she is motivated by an urge for movement as a consequence of being alive and by an endless and necessary will to share. Her teaching reaches people from various grounds – dancers, actors, circus and sports people – everyone willing to “try”.
Natalia is currently busy with FM, TCM, stillness&motherhood, collaboration with Voetvolk- Lisbeth Gruwez.
Natalia would not mind being a bird or an ocean –but she is the happiest when she can be herself. If she would be asked to close with a quote she would say:
“All I ask is that you step with me into the boundlessness, where constancy, quietude and peace, infinite emptiness reign.”
