°1978, Greece, lives and works in Brussels.
Danae Theodoridou creates performances and writes and curates frames for artistic research. Her primarily interest goes to the use and performativity of language. How narratives (oral and written) get shape on stage, page and in everyday life.
The past four years she focused particularly on the notion of ‘social imaginaries’; the deconstruction or reimagining of ideas and assumptions that underlie our social coexistence. In this frame she created two performances One Small Step for a Man: Hello, Goodbye(2015) and Earth in 100 Years (2016) plus a lecture performance: Something Dreamy (2016). In 2018, An Imaginary Symposium went into première at VEEM House for Performance (NL).
Danae’s work has been supported by organisations and institutions such as AHRC, Greek General Secretariat for Youth, European Union, Flemish Community, PACT Zollverein, Kunstencentrum BUDA (Kortrijk), wpZimmer, BIOS, Cacoyannis Foundation, Athens & Epidaurus Festival a.o.
