I originate from Athens. My undergraduate Diploma took place in the Department of Visual and Applied Arts of the University of Western Macedonia (2008-13), with majors in Painting and Scenography/Costume Design.
As a student I had the opportunity to participate in several international and national (in Greece) performances and exhibitions, such as the 8th International Theatre Universiade in the municipal Theatre Asteria in Serres, Greece with the performance Romeo and Juliet a Time for Us in May, 2012. The Third Act of the Six Acts workshop under the leadership of Louise Ann Wilson, for seven days at the Prague Quadrennial 2011 and the International Scenographers’ Festival IN3 in Basel of Switzerland in 2010 with a collaborative scenographic proposal for Medea by Euripides, in which we participated in the finals.
I took part in the Scenography Exhibition of the Student Artistic Festival 2010 in Athens in June 2010, with scenography for the play ‘Quartet‘ by Ηeiner Müller and closing with (my final undergraduate Diploma project performances) Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Telephone, Aristophanes’ Lysistrata (Florina, Greece 2012) and Homer’s Odyssey (Florina, 2011). In the last two, I was part of the design team. Here is a link to an archive recording of this performance of The Telephone.
Some of the pieces that I had been researching and worked on as design projects are: Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, the ballet, Claudio Modeverdi’s The Incarnation of Poppea (L’ Incoronazzione di Poppea), Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades, Heiner Müller’s Quartet and Euripides’ Medea.
My interests as a theatre designer are mostly in the areas of drama, musical theatre, opera and a variety of contemporary performance forms.
