Playground consists of a flexible and expansive network of people, all of whom contribute in their own ways, through practical help, development of ideas, creative support etc but most of all through a shared enthusiasm and dedication. The shared vision that holds us together is to create bonds with other creative professionals in the area, an interest (and curiosity) about other artists’ work and a strong desire to create a safe creative hub for everyone to play, try and share.
Within this wide network, that defies languages, borders and disciplines, exists the core team of Playground.
That’s who we are:
Stavroula is a performance artist and theatre maker. She likes creating characters, telling stories and, generally, making stuff up. Besides performing, she also sometimes teaches and delivers workshops on Devised Theatre and Performance Making. Stavroula can wire up a plug and use a wire-stripper as effectively as she can bake a dozen cupcakes.
Tim is a composer who likes creating soundscapes and noises using either the physics of sound, his laptop, or both. He is also working as freelance audiovisual technician, and occasionally teaching and giving workshops on Electroacoustic Composition and Music Technology.
Aya is a serious and proper artist, who takes herself and her art very seriously. She is fascinated by our appreciation of art, particularly in the use of language. She has a background in clinical and phenomenological psychology and is currently completing her doctoral research in the concept of ‘nothing-ness’.
