Profile Information

Performance Discipline
dance, performance, video, photography
A Greek cross-disciplinary artist who straddles performance art and site-specific performance, dance, video and photography. She currently lives in England (Lincoln) where she attends MFA in choreographing live art. She holds a BA honours in dance from the national dance academy of Rome (Italy) and a BA honours in italian literature and language from the Aristotle university of Thessalonikis (Greece). Her dance training background consists of diverse dance styles (modern, contemporary, release, jazz, primitive dance) as well improvisation, voice and movement, traditional dances, contact improvisation).
She develops interactive and site specific performances, as well as creating short dance and documentation videos. She is mainly inspired from the daily life and every detail related to human interaction with technology and nature, gender roles and diversity, social and political issues. The body as gathering place of emotions, personal and collective memory, fragmentation, transformation, the performativity of documentation are some of the pivotal topics of her projects/performances.
In search of an holistic way to express her vision (and based on a rhizomatic approach of making art) she collaborates with artists from different fields/cultural backgrounds. Part of her artistic research is on revisiting REBETIKO - a Greek urban folk genre of the 20th century of music and dance. She is interested to discover how tradition can influence a contemporary dance and performance setting or to become rich source for socially engaged art projects.
In 2013, as part of her studies, her activity extended towards curatorial practices. She created/curated the first edition of the mini festival “Interconnectivity & Live Art”, which was held in the Lincoln performing arts centre. Currently she collaborates with the sound/video artist Daz Disley, co-organize with Pavlos Kountouriotis the GNARL Fest 2014 a festival in Live Art and Choreography.
