am coming from Greece, where I also graduated as a lawyer. Exactly
after my graduation, I moved to Berlin so as to follow my life dream:
storytelling. My next journey was starting at the direction
department of filmArche. Finishing it, I started a new one, this
of autodidactism in the fields of screenwriting, acting and dancing which
goes on until toda
am I? The everlasting question. According to the modern Greek
philosopher Agape - yes, I do call myself a philosopher – the
truest part of us, is the spirit inside us.
the spirit tries to communicate with us through our feelings. When
humans, occupations, things, make us laugh, cry, scream, dream… In other words, when something inside us is moved, then we have to
follow this feeling wherever it leads us.

dance, singing, music, photography, film, writing, acting… at the
end of the story it is all one. I have
received them and shaped them.
creative part you can see at the next section „Projekte“ and on
my instagram page (to get a bit practical, apart from romantic). The
receiving part I have to narrate it to you. I know I break the „show,

a city of freedom called Athens, accompanied by the 20's jazz or sirtaki.
In the city where the sun shines strong and thousands of years ago tremendous ideas
were born. Among those
sacred streets and ancient stones, I experienced endless love, smiles, discussions and embrace. There I also met teachers who gave me valuable knowledge--
learned physical theater and contemporary dance with Olga
Gerogiannaki and Antonis Koutroubis at the Art Space Plefsis in
Exarcheia. I participated at an eye-opening
workshop about the David Mamet Acting Technique with Korina
Chrysaidou and George Haratzas in Empros Theater. I had innumerous hours
of screenwriting, film directing and film analysis sessions at the POFPA student group.
passing to the grey but mesmerizing Berlin was the continuation of
my journey into the world of arts. Some
parts took place in the heart-space of
filmArche and other at
the cosmopolitan atmosphere
of Schott Acting Studio.
I have to pick only some teachings, I
would mention: the „Character Analysis and Movement Psychology (The Yat Malmgren
Technique) Masterclass“ with James Kemp / The „Intimacy
On Set Workshop“ with Ita O’ Brien / The „Spiritual Psychology of Acting“ with John Osborne Hughes / The „Chubbuck Technique“ with Tim Garde. All
of them helped me understand storytelling from a different

greatest life vision is to produce my comedy series with the title "Love, Peace and Joy".
experimental amateur dancer clashes with a professional hip-hoper
demands real freedom but he wants to keep the community the old-school way. A love-hate relationship evolves where both are meant to learn a lot
from each other. "
on my own experience of becoming a dancer, I desire to show the world
the reality of the world of dance; not only the grace and the beauty
but also the superficiality and the vanity of it. By exposing
how professional dancers look down on amateur, the comedy element of
the series is
season one we follow the journey of Agape, a lawyer who finds
the courage to quit her job in Athens, moves to Berlin and applies to
dance schools at her 30's. Her lack of money, brings her to a public youth center, where she can train for free.
she meets her new enemy, Quarme, a 20 year old black guy
who was born in a family of German-African dancers and hip hop is all
he knows. Agape discovers little by little how many unwritten rules this community has.
is meant for them to confront. She fights for freedom, he fights for
the rules. Questions of discrimination, race, success and integrity are raised, but always in a comedian way.
real motive behind this story is to help humans realize their actions and laugh at their self-made drama.
this concept I have written several scenes, its season arc, pilot and bible. I
will be glad to share some of my material with you.
