Energetic, colourful, dream-like and hysterical are some of the adjectives usually used to describe Helen Benigson’s

Besides being a multimedia artist working on screens and the boundaries between the tangible and the digital worlds, she also raps under the name Princess Belsize Dollar. Having performed in places all over the world –from the UK to South Africa, Israel and the US–, with pieces that must be experienced in first person, we wanted to discover the woman behind such two strong artistic identities.
