Apostolia Papadamaki - Quasi Stellar

“ Beauty is in the eye of the beholder ” Plato

Quasi Stellar

  • is a creative structure founded by Apostolia Papadamaki in 2001 to produce, support and present staged and performance art via systematic research and experimentation, creating new performance codes or using existing codes and transforming them.​
  • aims to expand the horizons of the performance / dance genre. The body in all its forms is the subject of this research, always looking for a certain quality of transcendence, a strong sense of humanism and spirituality.
  • seeks new ways of developing, new ways of expressive means, new ways of interpretation, and new relations with other forms of contemporary art.
  • believes in collective work as means for the personal development of its interpreters. All the participants, performers/artists, experience that creation is a personal deposit and a collective affair.
  • interacts in public spaces, organizes lectures and workshops, invites all kinds of different artists to participate in performances and debates.
  • organizes, participates and initiates educational programs and workshops targeted at professionals as well as non professionals, handicaps and non handicaps, children and adults.
