Evgeny Borisenko is a Berlin-based dance and theatre critic, playwright and human rights lawyer. He has been a freelance reporter for the Russian «Театр.» theatre magazine and numerous French online resources, and collaborated with Maria La Ribot. While working with the Council of Europe he has become an avid spectator of contemporary dance and theatre in France and all around Europe, and has understood he could do more than watching.

In 2018 he participated to the Springback Academy and started reporting to the Springback Magazine from Berlin.
