Born in Athens and based in France Katerina Andreou graduated both from the Law School-University of Athens, and the State School of Dance in Athens.
She attended the program ESSAIS in CNDC d’ Angers and holds a master degree of Paris 8 on research and choreography. As a dancer she collaborated among others with DD Dorvillier, Lenio Kaklea, Bryan Campbell, Dinis Machado, Emmanuelle Huynh, Ana Rita Teodoro.
In her own work, she is interested in developing states of presence sorting out from a constant negotiation between contrasted tasks, fictions and universes, often questioning the relation to ideas as authority and autonomy, communication and censorship. She often makes the music design of her own pieces.
She was awarded with the choreography price Prix Jardin d’Europe, in ImpulsTanz Festival in 2016 for the solo dance piece A kind of fierce. She then created the solo BSTRD (2018) and the duo Zeppelin Bend (2021) with Natali Mandila.
Katerina Andreou is Associate Artist at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Caen en Normandie for the period 2022–2025, according to the Ministry of Culture’s system.
