After a rich feedback from two composition workshops, one instant composition workshop and one experiential workshop,“Architecture + Dance” research moves on and opens again! The 3rd cycle composition workshop is about group creation pieces following the paths of the research and meeting points of dance, architecture and music!

Guest speaker of us the music composer Pantelis Ntzialas!


The architect’s and choreographer’s research studies the coupling of the two arts in the synthetic process. The correlation is based on the perception that both arts create space through the movement of the bodies. The body perceives, creates and understands space and its dynamics in a kinesthetic way.

More about architecture + dance research


Objective of the choreography workshop “Architecture + Dance” is to feedback and develop the research throughout practice.The participants of the choreography workshop create independent pieces, on an initial idea of them. At first, the participants become experientially familiar with the objective of the research through specifically designed visualizing and improvisation exercises around space/movement perception and performative convention (experiential part). Then, following continuous feedback from the coordinator and by using the suggested architectural and choreography methods, they approach their idea kinesthetically. Through movement, they gradually discover a somatically and intellectually primitivistic way to compose space and time, which draws on principals of architecture, dance and music (compositional part).
