Participant Profile

Andra Rotaru


Rotaru is a poet with strong interests in interdisciplinary work. Her first collection of poems, an experimental dialogue with the paintings of Frida Kahlo was published in 2005 and earned her four literary awards. A second collection, published in 2010, deconstructed a personal experience into a broader vision that pushed creative boundaries. Rotaru also explored the unique sound that every person or natural phenomena possesses and the special sound created by every interaction. She is also a journalist and has participated in interdisciplinary events with visual artists and musicians. She sought to take part in a variety of events—dance, music, art and literary—to provoke the transformation of her literary work.
