London-based company Bird&Carrot, founded in 2014 by Alexandrina Markvo brings the distinctive voices of directors, artists and choreographers to the world’s most respected stages. Bird&Carrot works on a wide spectrum of artistic projects involving not only world-famous performers from across the globe, but also those just starting out on their creative journeys. What the company values above all is the freedom of creative expression. Its foremost objective, therefore, is to create a space for the exchange of artistic ideas and unrestricted discussions.
Among the events Alexandrina Markvo has produced in London are: a unique theatrical performance Brodsky/Baryshnikov at The Apollo Theatre (2017), concerts by Russian rock stars Boris Gebenshchikov (2016), Neschastny Sluchai (2017), Zemfira (2008), classical music concert of Theodor Currentzis and the Musica Aeterna ensemble (2005); and several art exhibitions, including Amanita’s Encyclopaedia (2016). She has also produced contemporary art exhibitions within the programme of the Venice Biennale (Unconditional Love, 2009, AES+F Inverso Munudus, 2014) and Sir Norman Foster’s retrospective exhibition at Pushkin Museum (Moscow, 2006).
Currently Alexandrina is working on an innovative contemporary dance project featuring Royal London Ballet principal dancer Natalia Osipova.
