In addition, she has been involved to the Athens street dance community (Lock‘n’Roll crew: Greece’s Got Talent Finalists, 2nd Place at Street Dance Choreography in Breakin’ Bad Contest/ Adagio Family crew/ Playmo-Beat crew). She joined the DAP programme in order to develop her choreographic and performance skills. She is interested in exploring movement and kinesiology; combining methods, techniques and cultures. She is also interested in examining the link between performing arts and literature works; transferring the characters from page to stage. Time function and memory are central poles in her research.
