Danai is an artist and art manager who lives and works in Greece. She holds an MA in Architecture, a BA in Dramatic Arts and she is now finishing her MSc in Architecture-Space and Culture. She has worked as an actress and performer in Greece and abroad, as well as a theatrical writer, a director and a theatrical play provider for children. She has a great interest in public art and social theater and in re establishing the relationship between the artist and the audience. She agrees with Augusto Boal who once wrote that “anyone can do theater, even actors”, so in 2018 she co-founded the b.p.m. (beats per minute) theater group and started working on theatrical productions.
Danai has always been socially engaged in her life and is determined to use experiences such as her fellowship with START (2019), as well as her collaboration with Quartier (Bremen, DE), to maximize the social impact of her work in Greece. Her vision is to use social theater activities in order to question and reform the social structures rooted in Greece and empower oppressed social groups, and she is not going to give up, so stay tuned!
