Anastasiia Liubchenko founded MimeWave in 2010 with the support of MAPA. With MimeWave Kids she performs for young children from two years of age.

Anastasiia studied pantomime and animation directing in Kyiv and later mime at the AHK Theater School in Amsterdam. She has participated in many productions for children and adults both as a performer and as artistic leader and she is also a keen painter. Her interest in the visual often shines through in her stage works. Yellow, for example, was inspired by the shades of this colour that Vincent van Gogh used in his paintings. Anastasiia’s own paintings and her theatre productions are full of imagination, humour and a wish to put things into perspective, often touching on social issues and the strong emotions they involve.
