StratoFyzika is a Berlin based collective creating movement-based interactive audiovisual performances, founded on the meeting of three personalities, three fields
(sound, animated images and dance), and three cultural backgrounds.
Alessandra Leone (IT), Lenka Kocisova (CZ), Hen Lovely Bird (USA), met for their very first collaboration, in 2012. Each of the three artists/fields/backgrounds represents one “stratum” (Strato) of our complex perception: audio, visual and movement layers. They use the laws of physics (Fyzika) as a metaphorical way of explaining material states from the realms of imagination, emotions and spirit.
A multi-layered process that echoes the cognitive processes of the mind and the way stories are collected through life as a tool of learning and orientation.


In 2014, the formation of the group evolved, seeing Alessandra Leone and Hen Lovely Bird still as core members, but opening to a wider and specific number of collaborations. Giovanni Marco Zaccaria / interactive technology (IT) joined for the creation of "Shadows of aikia" and again in 2014 together with Davic Nod / sound (SP), Oriol Pastor / creative coding (SP) , Thomas Vanta / creative coding (SP) , for the production of THÆTA. Daria Kaufman / choreography, dance (US), who collaborated already in the past for the creation of a StratoFyzika dance for camera video (Atavistic Matter), joined the team for Phi ( currently work-in-progress ).
