Dana Raz workshop

A creative workshop with the Israeli dancer and choreographer.
Dana Raz workshop at UP
Dana Raz offers to her students a personal formation, supported by her own proper language, a result of her years of academic experience , her conditions as a professional dancer (under renowned choreographers) and her teaching profile.
The Israeli choreographer follows a pattern of work that has been molded together with her background as a teacher in the international program “Masa” (KCDC), where she taught during five years and with whom she continues collaborate for the import of workshops.

Evi Tzortzi
m.e.t.a. - Evi Tzortzi, 28-29 Apr, Vitruvian Thing
modified estimated time of arrival

Living in life's gray zone... You control are controlled, living in fear, having lost all contact with your conscience. A shaking, though, from the deepest levels of your existence, can throw you off the television's pedestal and your drugged sleep.
So what happens when the arrival of a different conscience takes place unpredictably?

In any case, do send us your video dance and experimental shorts via email, with a vimeo/youtube link, and we'll consider it for Locus, when it happens, or our special screenings in February and March!

The Venue

Vitruvian Thing interior

Art space, contemporary dance stage, live music venue, audiovisual studio. Home of the fuzzy mind and the experimentally inclined psyche. And Die Wolke Art Group’s headquarters.

Inside the 130 sq.m. space one finds a theatrical stage with an arsenal of audiovisual technology supporting it, an electronics lab, an editing/color grading/VFX workstation, sound and lights, a 5m projection screen, cameras, and a host of sensor and controller apparatus. Also a small number of people that are adept at utilising the aforementioned implements to creative effect. Vitruvian Thing is intended to host all kinds of experimental activities, collaborations, and educational events: dancetheatre performances, live music, film projections, installations, theatre, talks, exhibitions.

Events at Vitruvian Thing are invariably underscored by our philosophy of quality and respect towards audience and artists. The venue, as well as its managing group Die Wolke, is a non-profit endeavour (Die Wolke is a registered non-profit company).

Past Events



Vitruvian Thing seats 50 people in four rows. Most shows have multiple times/dates, so reservations are necessary to help us manage attendance.

We make it a point to start on time, to break the vicious circle of showtime delays that encourage belated arrivals and so on.

We recommed that you subscribe to our mailing list to stay informed. Social networks no longer work as they should for most people. We will never abuse your email address!


We are always looking for interesting performances to host, that meet our mission statement: high quality, forward thinking art; experimental, innovative ideas by contemporary artists; cross-disciplinary, intermedial technique; including, but certaily not limited to, dancetheatre, contemporary experimental/electroacoustic music, performance art.

The stage is about 46 sq.m. of black, antivibrational, with computer-controlled lighting, wide projection area, sound system, etc.


Vitruvian Thing makes a great independent mini-cinema! The projector produces a high-contrast, 5m wide, image, directly on white wall. The stereo sound system is full range and plenty powerful.

Every spring we host Locus, an anti-fest of experimental films, videodance/videoart works, and animation, by Thessaloniki-based creators.

It is also possible to book the venue for premieres, presentations, or other projection events. We’re always excited to meet and talk to innovative filmmakers that want to show their work.


The space is bookable as a studio for seminars, workshops, rehearsals, video shooting sessions, general-purpose experimentalism, or any other purpose, with or without staff.

We also host Occam’s Sharpener, the post-production unit responsible for the visual effects in Imago, as well as various other visual media and programming projects.
