"Ǝ V A"
The solo performance Ǝ V A is the narration in a story of wandering, an extension and prolongation beyond what is normal. It is a journey and an effort to exist in new surroundings or even to rebuild an existence through a new landscape.
The heading title of the work is inspired by the name of the protagonist, bringing the element of the remnants that her body carries from its previous journeys and at the same time the mirroring image of it, refers to the latin word Ave, bringing the element of a farewell to the past and a greeting to new beginnings.
'''ƎVA'' premiered at the 27th international Kalamata dance festival in July 2021.

"Φφ - Between Space & Time it is all movement"
The idea of the project"Φφ - Between Space & Time it is all movement" emerged after 81 days of kinesiological pause and abstinence.
It is the antithesis of an interruption that caused nostalgia for a body that is kinetically active, strong, and present, with the main desire of the absolute connection with the music that accompanies it.
'''Φφ'' premiered at Rena Vlahopoulou | Mon Repo on August 2020.
