Kalliopi Venieri

Athens, Attica, Greece

As a ballet soloist I worked with leading international companies (American Ballet Theatre, Grand Ballet du Marquis de Cuevas, Opera of Geneva, Dutch National Ballet). Picked to dance Sleeping Beauty with Nureyev, I chose instead to go to the Hamburg Opera and dance leading roles in George Balanchine's ballets, coached by Balanchine himself. Worked with other great choreographers like Lifar, Massine, Nijinska, and coaches from the Bolshoi and Kirov. Ran La Danse school in Athens for 24 years, choreographing nearly 50 ballet performances for my students. Now working mainly as a sculptor, I am a founder member of the creative collaboration VENIVINCE; our aim is to create new work by mixing different artistic disciplines, especially dance, sculpture and photography. We have presented four VENIVINCE exhibitions in Greece: at Museum Herakleidon, Zivasart, Archaeological Museum Delphi, and Contemporary Space Athens. “Dancing is one of the most powerful sensations there is; engaging body, mind and feelings in a pattern with the music.”
