Petros Konnaris |

Petros (Cyprus, 1988) is working between the fields of live art, participatory art, and dance. He received an MA in Live Arts and Performance Studies from Theater Academy of UniArts Helsinki. He has also studied Dance (University of Nicosia, 2011) and Mathematics and Statistics (University of Cyprus, 2011). He received a DanceWeb Scholarship in 2012, part of the ImpulsTanz festival in Vienna. Petros performed his work in various festivals and events in Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Spain, Finland, Germany, Singapore and Thailand.
In his work Petros explores the performativity and the embodiment of caring, intimacy and gentleness, nakedness and playfulness. His artistic work manifests in the form of everyday situations, durational happenings, 1-1(one with one) performances, public interventions, and performance scores. His methodology includes the use of conversation and text, performing yourself in extraordinary situations, and feminist and queer discourse.
Petros is based in Cyprus and is currently the artistic director of Dance House Lefkosia and the vice president of Nea Kinisi Cyprus.
