Dance Limerick Studio

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, while working on the creative potential of the connection between movement, voice and language. The participants work on their movement and use of voice constantly throughout the duration of the session. 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.

About Evangelia Kolyra

Evangelia Kolyra is a Greek, London-based choreographer and performer, who is interested in performance work which takes place within theatre spaces, site-specific, film and installation contexts. Evangelia’s work aims to offer audiences a kinaesthetically 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 has been featured in various platforms and festivals in Europe (England, Scotland, Greece, Italy, Sweden, Germany) and she is working towards developing a cross-disciplinary and highly collaborative practice. 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).
