As a choreographer Lidia Wos has a characteristic and personal style. She has a natural and organic way of creating the movements even though she often adds an extra twist. Her choreographies are full of fantasy where new body angles and positions are suddenly revealed. But her choreographies are not only about movements and steps. Lidia put a lot of attention to all details, where everything – music, costumes, set, props, light etc. – is as important in the universe that she creates. Her creations are full off images, often with an absurd and humoristic twist.

She has been commissioned as a choreographer for dance companies, theatres and operas in Sweden, Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and United States. Her works cover everything from short dance solos and full evening performances for larger dance ensembles to dramatic theatre, music theatre and opera.
