Christina Karagianni is a dancer, performer and researcher based in Athens. She is a graduate of the National School of Dance in Athens (2010) and holds a Master’s in Contemporary Theatre, Dance and Dramaturgy from the University of Utrecht (2015). As a dancer and performer, she has collaborated with the following visual artists and choreographers: Amy Pickles, Clara J:son Borg, Nova Melancholia (Vasilis Noulas and Kostas Tzimoulis), arisandmartha, Iris Karayan, Vassilea Stylianidou aka Franck-Lee Alli-Tis, Vera Sofia Mota, Pedro Gómez-Egaña, Michelle Moura, Michael Klien, Stella Dimitrakopoulou, and Nefeli Myrtidi, among others. Recurring questions that feed her research concern the transformative potential inherent in dance, the ways of evaluating the labor of the dancing body and the distribution of authorship. Her article ‘The Notion of Dialogue in Re-enacted choreographies’ has appeared in the journal Dance Research published in the Netherlands (2017). Since 2020, she is a member of the collective research and artistic project in progress called WordMord together with Franck-Lee Alli-Tis aka Vassilea Stylianidou, Aggeliki Diakrousi, Stylianos Benetos aka Oyto Arognos. WordMord asks questions about the relationship between language, technology, trauma and violence. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2022).
