WORK EXPERIENCE: THEATRE DIRECTING, DEVISING, PERFORMING

Since 2012, Angela Delichatsios has been based in Athens, Greece, and with an ensemble of co-creators, she has directed and devised three physical theatre performances that incorporate poetic texts with site-specific somatic embodiment and interaction with non-usual theatre spaces: two park spaces and a former workshop. Two of the performances have been ambulatory, a form which is relatively new for Athenian audiences, where the audience follows the performers through different spaces where the performance takes place. The performances have also had an activist dimension by re-introducing green spaces (some of which had been semi-abandoned) to Athenian citizens, and they have been created in collaboration with local groups who are advocating for better care of the parks.
