Maria (Mantia) Papathanasiou

Interprète, Chorégraphe

My favourite place is to begin from the beginning, at the zero point. This is also the ending for me. I am continuously learning only to unlearn, and then learn all over again. My key words: effort, change, freedom, creativity. I believe that life is a profound struggle to discover who we are and what position we have in the world.
