Trapped by Medie Megas is a site specific performance taking its audience on a journey through history, language, conflict and the construction of national identity in Greece, past and present.
In the early 20th century, in the midst of clashes between the Greek factions, Isadora Duncan a pioneer of modern dance, found herself caught up in events that marked Greek history, with violent confrontations that incurred loss of life: the 1903 riots over language and the National Schism of 1915. Trapped is a performative experience, that starts as documentary dance theatre, and evolves into a site-specific installation and participatory performance.
Fast Forward Festival, April 10th - 13th 2018 | Onassis Cultural Centre

TRANSFORMING ME: ΈΝΑ ΔΊΓΛΩΣΣΟ ΣΌΛΟ
How does one imagine and create a different reality?Transforming Me is a meditation on personal and social transformation. The improvisational ‘transformation’ form upon which the piece is based, models the shifts through familiar into unfamiliar, through repetition and tipping points, through fear and hope.
