TheGuestProject is an artistic platform of research and creation founded in Thessaloniki in November of 2017.
Two dancers, Mina Ananiadou and Daphne Krazoudi, set up site-specific dance performances in Thessaloniki with live music, inviting different dancers and musicians every month.
During these weeklong, consecutive cycles and through a dense sequence, the dancers prepare different thematic approaches in order to create collectively integrated choreographies (which they name “drafts”) and perform them in art galleries, monuments and other unexpected public places. Each collaboration cycle serves not only as a challenge and an invitation to the participating artists to unleash their originality, but also as an endless stretch to actively engage the audience.
