During her Dance-Tech/Lake Studio Residency, she will continue her research on e-textile and dance with the help of Pauline Vierne,

By using different techniques to light the body space, she creates a material that is neither light neither movement but can exist only by the combination of both.

Zoi Dimitriou, greek choreographer based in London will be working on her new piece this April. She will be working on The Chapter House, a new interdisciplinary dance piece with intricate choreography by Zoi Dimitriou and video design by Mark Coniglio.

This new work looks at the act of documentation and of performing. It aims to expose the processes and mechanics of making, and uses digital media to document, re-construct and re-enact a live performance.

In The Chapter House, Zoi Dimitriou looks back at the body of her own work and questions how meaning gets revealed and transformed in an attempt to subject the ‘personal’ to another’s viewpoint.
