Zoe Katsilerou

Zoe is an interdisciplinary performer and maker with background on dance-theatre, devised theatre, polyphonic song, voice coaching, somatic practices and improvisation.

Her work is involves choreography (improvised and set), sound and live music (song and sound design), text and storytelling. As a mover, researcher and teacher, Zoe is interested in the entanglement of choreography and text, with a particular focus on the poetic elements that this connection facilitated.

Zoe is member of SBC Theatre and Vonnegut Collective, associate with Sura Medura, and co-founder of ICEBERG, a group of international improvisers investigating interdisciplinarity within improvisation. 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 began making her own work in 2016, with her first dance-theatre piece, A Day in A Year-and-a-half, a duet with actor-musician Eilon Morris, concerned with isolation and the yearning for companionship. Her second piece, Separated in Birth, has been in research and development since 2019 and will be brought into production within 2020-2021. Zoe's performances reflect her observations of everyday's socio-politics and aims to facilitate discussions around themes of identity, community, home and equality.
