In addition to her work as artistic director of the Nostos Dance Theater, Athens-born Christina Liakopoyloy works as a freelance choreographer for dance theater, opera and drama productions throughout Germany. She has staged over 25 full-length pieces for Nostos Tanztheater in Heidelberg and Mannheim. In her work, she combines the genres of dance (contemporary-urban dance styles) and post-dramatic spoken theater. Political, socially critical content as well as interpersonal, intercultural relationships in aesthetic discourse are the focus of her interdisciplinary work. She also teaches choreographic theater at the University of Education Heidelberg and the University of Heidelberg, at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich and at the University of Art and Design in Athens. Nostos Dance Theater locates itself in our society and discusses the social issues of our time in the medium of language, drama and dance. Christina Liakopoyloy has lived in Heidelberg since 1983.
