Zoe Katsilerou

Zoe an interdisciplinary artist working across dance, theatre and music/polyphonic song, somatic practices and improvisation. Originally from Greece, Zoe has been living and working in the UK since 2015. Her practice focuses on relationships between choreography, sound and storytelling. Using an autobiographical starting point, Zoe's work reflects upon her socio-political and ecological observations of the everyday and aims to engage in dialogue with its audiences. Zoe considers her work to be a weave of disciplines, her cultural heritage, and her political and environmental activism.

Zoe is associate artist of SBC Theatre and Leeds Playhouse. She is a co-founder of interdisciplinary improvisation collective ICEBERG, and a founder of the Movement and Voice Network. As founding and active member of ICEBERG, Zoe has received Creative Scotland funding to organise and run Weekends of Improvisation in Glasgow (WIG), a space for research on relationships between music and dance improvisation.

Zoe has worked with companies and practitioners such as Rob Heaslip Dance, Niamh O'Loughlin, Rachel Dean, Vonnegut Collective, Third Angel. Zoe is currently in the process of researching collective ways of being that shift/stretch our perception of time.
