Actress, Director, Researcher
Bio
Born in Athens, originary of Crete and Constantinople; she studied Philosophy and Drama in Brussels between 1996 and 2002 before travelling to the UK, Poland and Italy in order to continue and further her theatre practice training as a performer. In 2007 she began her research on what she intuitively called ‘the vertical actor’. In 2008 she encountered Russian director Anatoli Vassiliev with whom she trained as an actress and director and discovered the ludic structures, an approach to acting and the theatrical art inspired by Plato’s texts. In 2011 she founded the ensemble Raw Material in London in order to make work which questions the status quo in an encounter between the raw material of the human being, the text and the space. In 2013 she finally encounters Maud Robart.

About Chekhov - A workshop led by Rawmatterial

Posted on September 10, 2013 at 5:49am 0 Comments

 Participants will unwrap their organicity via the practice of the ‘étude’, as developed by K. Stanislavski during the last years of his life and transmitted by M. Knebel, A.Popov and A. Vassiliev. Through a creative process breaking theatrical clichés, the actors will be initiated to Chekhov’s polyphonic writing. The practical exploration will be collective, working via monologues and scenes. The sessions will be led by Maria Gaitanidi using the material of one of Chekhov’s masterpieces.…
