Petros Konnaris

Performance Artist

Petros (Cyprus, 1988) is working between the fields of live art, participatory art, and dance. His performances are a meeting between people to share and to explore concepts like taking care of each other, gentleness, coming together, and issues of nakedness, intimacy, playfulness, and fun.

He graduated from the MA level degree in Live Arts and Performance Studies program in Theater Academy of UniArts Helsinki. He has also studied Dance (University of Nicosia, 2011) and Mathematics and Statistics (University of Cyprus, 2011).

He received a DanceWeb Scholarship in 2012, part of the ImpulsTanz festival in Vienna. Through his artistic practice, Petros wishes to blend everyday life and performance and share some kind of “special” moments with the audience member(s)/participants. He believes care and gentleness as a crucial element for communication, exploration, and interaction.

Petros is based in Cyprus and spends a lot of his time with his goddaughter Anthousa.
