Danae Papadopoulou (Thessaloniki 1996) is a greek choreographer and performer based in France. She started by taking classes in classical ballet (vaganova) and in contemporary dance (limon, release and contact improvisation techniques). After her bachelor in Greek Philology (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki 2018) she did a Master in performing Arts (Grenoble University 2021) and she continued by following workshops with various artists (German Jauregui and Ultima Vez, Mark Tompkins, Anne Collod, Julies Desprairies, Dai Jian, Catherine Contour). She has a specific interest in the dialogue between text, movement and human sciences, such as anthropology and linguistics. Her work focuses on the social and cultural origins of the body, as well as the questions of identity and culture due to the environment from which it comes. She founded the artistic company Valitsa in Grenoble in 2021. In 2022 she cocreated the PLAM (Platforme Artistique de Mutualisation) artistic platform with five young choreographers. Together they gained an Internship from the French Minister of Culture for the participatory research laboratory T.R.I.P. in collaboration with the choreographer Ivana Müller and the Pacifique CDCN of Grenoble for the season 2022-2023. She was selected by GRAME the CNCM of Lyon to join Lips Lab, a residency program for multidisciplinary performing artists on the theme of "New immersive narratives” for the 2023 edition.
