Martha is a dance artist from Greece. She holds a BA in dance by the Professional Dance School of N. Kontaxaki in Athens, a Chemistry degree by the National University of Athens, and an MA in Performance by London Contemporary Dance School. Her practice lies on the design of improvisation scores, the observation of performer’s experiential journey, and the embodiment of the conscious and subconscious interrelations.
Since 2010 she has worked with choreographers such as Wally Cardona, Robert Clark, Eva Recacha, Sung Im Her, Pietro Marullo, Michael Klien, Seke Chimutengende, Leila McMillan, Roberta Jean, Requardt & Rosenberg and with the artists Tino Sehgal (Palais de Tokyo/ Athens Roman Agora/ Tate Modern), Stefanos Tsivopoulos (Kalfayan Galleries) and Marina Abramovic (Benaki Museum/ Serpentine Gallery). She has received scholarships by A. Onassis, I. Kostopoulos and Schilizzi Foundations and in 2015 she was a Danceweb scholarship recipient by Impulstanz international dance festival in Vienna.
In 2017, along with Aris Papadopoulos, they created the company arisandmartha as the artistic collaboration between the two, exploring togetherness on stage and experimenting with movement and performative language under different conceptual ideas. They have created the works touching.just (Aerowaves 2018), Five Steps to Save the World (2018), Lucy. tutorial for a ritual (Athens & Epidaurous Festival 2019), ALL THAT MATTER or notes on performing friendship (2022) and OUT OF SPRING (2022).
