The Goethe-Institut Athen, the French Institute of Greece and Kinitiras in collaboration with Flux Laboratory Athens are offering a residency program for artists in Spring 2020 in Athens, with the support of the Franco-German Cultural Fund.
This year’s thematic umbrella for all Kinitiras’ actions is the idea of TRANSITION. This idea unites five artists from Africa and Europe who will live and work together in Athens for a three-week residency program. They will experience the everyday life in the city and through the co-existence and interchange they will be inspired to create one or more community dance performances that will be presented in the In Progress Feedback Festival in April 2020 in Athens.
The selected artists are:
From Democratic Republic of the Congo: Blaise Mangitukulu (elective: Sunday Ozegbe from Nigeria)
From France: Jeanne Louët (elective: Emilie Vaudou)
From Germany: André Uerba (elective: Patricia Woltmann)
From Greece: Anna Lioliou & Bafuli Camara (electives: Marilena Sitaropoulou and Costas Kekis)
