Evie is a dance maker and performer based in Cyprus.
Her work can be characterised by the desire to question the role of the person in society while challenging the boundaries of conventional dance. In every new piece of work the artist challenges her own limits as well as the spectators’, creating a space of interaction and communication.
Her main focus, to communicate her research with the audience, brings to her work humour, interactivity with the audience, and bold but different approaches to her work every time. Her staged performances as well as videodances have been presented in many international festivals across Europe and Africa.
Evie has a diverse education background. She graduated with BSc in Land Management at the University of Reading and worked in the field of Urban Planning in London and Paris. She studied dance at the Laban Centre in London and with scholarship at Limon Institute and Dance Space Centre in New York.As a performer she collaborated with Alain Buffard, Felix Ruckert, Rosemary Lee, Athina Vahla and with many Cyprus based choreographers. She is a 2004 Danceweb scholarship recipient and a travel grant recipient from the E-motional European Programme 2011-2014. In 2012 she was an invited artist for the European project “Act Your Age” , a European collaboration between Holland, Italy and Cyprus.
Evie is a co-founder of En drasi, the umbrella that supports her choreographic work. She also has an active role in developing the art of performance/dance in Cyprus and is one of the founding members and resident artist at the Dance House Lemesos.
