Evangelia Kolyra

Practicing perception and performance, The main aim of the class is to train the performing body. We focus on perception and use what is available on the body at each moment. The participants move constantly throughout the duration of the class. Improvised actions lead to short repetitive movement combinations which build into longer phrases. The class encourages stamina, creativity and offers elements that each participant can play with and incorporate the notions of perception and performance.

Evangelia is a Greek, London-based choreographer and performer, interested in performance work which takes place within theatre spaces, site-specific, film and installation contexts. Evangelia’s work aims to offer audiences a kinesthetically rich experience of the unexpected, humorous and sometimes dark or sinister sides to the psychology of human experience, presented within highly detailed and physically demanding choreography.

Her work, supported by organisations in the UK and Greece has been featured in various platforms and festivals in Europe (England, Scotland, Greece, Italy, Sweden, Germany). As a performer, Evangelia has worked amongst others with Marina Abramovic, Willi Dorner, Simon Ellis, Deborah Hay, Rosemary Lee, Tino Sehgal and Matthias Sperling.

Evangelia has an MFA in Choreography from Roehampton University (UK), a BA in Dance from Professional Dance School D.Gregoriadou (GR) and a BA in Greek Philology-Linguistics from National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR).
