Irini Kalaitzidi

Irini is a dance artist and researcher who works with technology, coding and machine learning, exploring critical and caring modes of engaging with the body. Her practice aims to unsettle our perception of the anthropomorphic dancer and speculate on its possible becomings beyond dualisms and disciplinary boundaries.

She has presented her works, be they dance performances, videos or research articles and talks in Athens, London, Berlin and Kyiv, within cultural institutions and platforms like Somerset House, DRHA, Onassis Cultural Centre and Stavros Niarchos Foundation, to name a few. She studied dance at the Greek National School of Dance and holds an MA in Computational Arts from Goldsmiths University of London, with which she keeps collaborating as an associate lecturer.

She lives in-between Tinos island (GR) and London (UK).
