Eleni has taught in dance institutions across the UK and Greece and she has also co-facilitated workshops worldwide (Mexico, Thailand and India) in local schools and orphanages.
In 2014 Eleni found the performing arts company “A(r)CT: Art can Act”, with the idea that dance and every art form should serve as a medium for sociopolitical change. She has since been exploring the ideas of artivism, performance in public space as well as authentic movement and spontaneous choreography and she has created and presented various works for outdoors and indoors settings.
Through A(r)CT Eleni aims to create accessible, interactive art by combining dance, text, music and visual arts. Her main intention is to communicate a meaning related to our everyday life, our social and human existence and the contemporary world, allowing people to engage with what they see and respond to it actively.

My work interrogates the experience of when the personal collides with the political. The lenses which I use to explore this are the grotesque, the erotic, shame and desire all via an interdisciplinary practice of video art, installation and performance.
My aim is to create a playful and inquisitive dialogue with the viewer. A dialogue that opens up space in both the viewer and myself to ask uncomfortable questions about how we face and utilise our oppressive societal stereotypes.
I have received funding for my work from the Art Council England, EU Cultural Foundation, Cambridge Junction, Brain Child Festival, 56 Dean Street Sexual Health Clinic and Theatre 503 as well as in kind support from Battersea Arts Centre and Theatre N16.
I was recently awarded the 2022 Arts Council Development Grant for transitioning from a live art practice to video art and installation.
