The favorite educational meetings of Kinitiras (Dancetheatre) return regularly twice a week at Technourgeio! These meetings will lead at the beginning of the summer to a performance-celebration in which all the groups of Kinitiras will participate on the occasion of the 10 years of the Kinitiras Ω group.
Kinitiras is a lesson that combines modern dance and theatre techniques through the eyes of the people of Kinitiras. In the course emphasis is given on the physical and theatrical expression, on creative exercise of body and voice as well as on the development of teamwork through the performing arts.
The first part activates and strengthens the body and the voice; the second part is improvisation, composition, drama and game inspired by different styles of music, theatre and literary texts, newspaper articles, images etc.
The participants come from different professional backgrounds and age groups. Our purpose is that the class and the rehearsal process will act as a healing factor in our daily life. In this way, the social benefits of the arts directly affects the everyday life of the local community.
Until Christmas the meetings are open to any adult interested in trying out. After Christmas the group closes and prepares for the performance in a theatre in Athens.

Antigone Gyra created the company KINITIRAS dance spectacle in 1996 with which she has choreographed dozens of works to date, with grants from the Ministry of Culture and other institutions or independently, which have been presented in Greece and abroad. From 2008 to 2019 she coordinated the first residency centre for performing arts in Greece, which offered on the cultural map of Athens research events, artists’ exchanges and artistic hospitality (www.kinitiras.com). With Kinitiras she brings dance and physical theatre to primary and secondary education while organizing Erasmus+ youth exchange programs with the aim of social awareness (lgbtq+, refugees, hate speech etc.). In the last two years, she carried out two choreographic researches (Femininity in transition, Contemporary Dance and Third Age) with the support of foreign bodies and the Ministry of Culture. She has collaborated with important directors and groups at the National Theatre and the Athens and Epidaurus Festival. She teaches movement and choreography in vocational schools.
