Antonia Oikonomou is a choreographer, artistic director and performer. She was born in Athens in 1995. Antonia creates material through an ongoing process with dancers and artists in the form of long term workshops. She attributes great emphasis in creating original music compositions for her pieces. Her close academic relationship with the History of Art constitutes her primary source of inspiration for creating images on stage. Antonia is also the artistic director and curator in most of the pieces that she conceptualizes and presents.
She is the founder, executive producer and artistic director at ERGO Collective. ERGO Collective is a multileveled artist platform which follows a multi-interdisciplinary approach. It questions and elaborates on the borders between all Art disciplines, in terms of creative process and the experience of the viewer/ participant. Through the collaborations which arise between the collective and artists from Athens and abroad, Antonia finds a way to form her artistic process as an open field, not limited in the theatre space, as it extends in the Visual Art practices.
Her upcoming piece, PiETA II, will be presented on April 2019 in the Alternative Stage of the Greek National Opera at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, for charity purposes (Association of Friends of Children with cancer, Elpida). PiETA II is a revised, reworked and revisited version of her previous piece PiETA with new artists, images and original music compositions. The PiETA was originally presented by Antonia at the Roes Theatre in May 2018.
