The works of composer Veronika Krausas are performed throughout Europe and North America, where she is recognized for her innovative use of dance, acrobatics and video. The Globe & Mail(Toronto) writes "her works, whose organic, lyrical sense of storytelling are supported by a rigid formal elegance, give her audiences a sense that nature's frozen objects are springing to life." The Los Angeles Times said of her chamber opera "Something novel this way comes."
Since 1998 Krausas has directed, composed for, and produced multi-media events in Los Angeles that incorporate her works with dance, acrobatics and video. Of Lithuanian heritage, she was born in Australia and raised in Canada. Krausas has music composition degrees from the University of Toronto and McGill University in Montreal. She is currently a Professor at the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles, where she received her doctorate in composition.Back to The Team
