BIOGRAPHY Eleni Mylona, creates work that explores the possibilities of language and body, within time and space, and reflects on the relationship of language to imagination. In recent years she has been looking for ways to read, to write, to share, move and imagine together, with the intention to create intimate spaces of coexistence. Her performances, which are presentations of artistic research and/or works for the (public) space, have been featured in festivals, biennials and art exhibitions, and have been presented in theatres, galleries, and research spaces in Athens, Thessaloniki, Zurich, Basel, Berlin, London and Arnhem. In Zurich, over the last 12 years, she has collaborated with the following dance institutions, theatres and research groups: Tanzhaus Zurich, RoteFabrik Theater, Maxim Theater, Holzke, MerumAtelier, Tropchertoshare, Terrasse Ensemble, Tanz+Twicky, OFFDance, etc. as choreographer-movement curator, dance teacher, and maker/performer. At the same time, from 2007 to the present, she organises as an independent maker and co- organises with organisations, a series of long-term processes for groups, within which dance/movement, reading/writing and dialogue/reflection are the basic compositional and research tools. She teaches contemporary dance (Limon technique) and improvisation to both professional and amateur dancers/actors, as well as to children and adolescents, and has presented a series of seminars and workshops on her artistic research, improvisation, contemporary dance and performance. She graduated from 'ArtEZ University of the Arts' in the Netherlands, with a masters degree on artistic research: 'MA Theatre Practices'(2017-2019). She studied dance at the school of Leonidas de Pian (80-'86) and at the State School of Dance ( K.S.O.T.) (87-'91), and holds a degree in dance teaching from the Higher Professional School of 'Morianova Trasta' (2004-2007).
