Her belief in collective support and resource-sharing is evident in her advocacy for the dance community. Her work not only delves into the physicality of movement but also engages with the inherent ways in which dance generates and communicates knowledge.This approach involves a deep exploration of the intersection between the existential and knowledge aspects of dance. By intertwining the corporeal and the cognitive, she creates a space for dance that is not only aesthetically compelling but also intellectually resonant.

After moving to Germany she started her choreographic career by participating in Soltunatu Tantsu Lava The PREMIERE`17 residency in Tallinn and then started working with Freies Theater München.Since 2022 she is supported by Kulturreferat München.

As a dancer, Alina worked with, among others, United-C, Hege Haagenrud, Isabelle Schad, Claudia Castellucci, Helena Waldmann, Alexandra Pirici
