Evangelia Kolyra is a Greek, London-based choreographer and performer interested in performative work which takes place within theatre spaces, site-specific, film and installation contexts.

Evangelia's work, supported by organisations in the UK and Greece has been featured in various platforms and festivals in Europe (England, Scotland, Greece, Italy, Sweden, The Netherlands). As a performer she has worked amongst others with Marina Abramovic, Willi Dorner, Simon Ellis, Deborah Hay, Rosemary Lee, Tino Sehgal and Matthias Sperling.
