LADIA (2017)

Inspired by female "superheroes" Lara Croft and Nadia Comaneci, Ladia dedicates all her effort to win the game,

where the only game is to win over herself.

"Sandra’s work is a bright light, a searing, physicalization of our contradictory lives,"

- David Neuman, Advanced Beginner Group, Bessie Award recipient (New York)
