Homemotion is a neoclassical apartment/working space of 100 square meters with a communal terrace, located in the centre of Athens, in a neighbourhood that is still raw and yet to be explored.
It includes all kinds of markets and cafes, a fully functioning urban infrastructure.
The Street Michail Voda used to be the place where all the artists lived back in the days when the aristocracy was thinking.
Living in a home built in the year 1930, in such an authentic street like Michail Voda, you will feel and breath the air of real Athens.
I offer you a very unique space for writers, filmmakers, choreographers and all kinds of artists to expand your own vision and get inspired.
The street establishes a flow between the north and the south of Athens and connects the city like a channel.
Homemotion was built in the 30´s and holds all the original features, a true journey in time.
For me, the essential interaction is to be in an authentic choreographer’s environment which I built up for you to create a platform to expand your own Gesamtkunstwerk.
It’s a space where you can process all the experiences and emotions you have collected throughout the spatiality of the city.
The minimalistic composition of Homemotion opens up possibilities, it invites you to expand your practice and to inhabit the place fully for the time of your residency.
Homemotion opens for you a space that is a melange of differently conceived rooms that set you into diverse emotional landscapes and facilitate your fantasy to dive deeper into your own e_motion.
Get to know the spaces:
Eros, the studio, indicates the motor of all creation. In the sense of consciousness and action, love has always been the driving force. The studio space Eros gives you the possibility to expand upon all your perceptions and your emotional motor towards what you have absorbed from the space, downtown, above, instead and why not.
Musical Leitmotiv: Spin your vinyls
Poseidon, the hallway flows along. It indicates direction and channels. Be water my friend!
Musical Leitmotiv: K7, unroll your old cassettes
Chaos, the kitchen, where everything originates and concentrates and things are cooked up. Only a genius controls the chaos.
Musical Leitmotiv: Radiotronik from Panosonic 70’s
Apollon, the grand bedroom, a.k.a the writers room. The green view and the light of this room unravels its character immediately. Light, art and divination.
Musical Leitmotiv: It’s time to use technology…..yours!
Orpheus, the Z(s)econd room, is an extra place to host a guest or to disappear in, from time to time, from space to place, to be pleeeaZed…
Musical Leitmotiv: Silence
Etheras, the bathroom and the loft above it, in case you want to connect with your own upstairs and downstairs intuition.
Musical Leitmotiv: Water splashes
During the first three days, if desired, I will stay with you in the flat and I will give you a brief coaching session to help you structure your artistic goals.
We will work with your body and your conscious awareness. Performance and staging methods will be included, as well as yoga and breathing techniques.
If you want to go further I also offer talk-inspirations and the shifting of energy.
After our three days together, we can meet once a week on Skype to deepen your process.
If you are willing to present your work at Booze Cooperativa you can communicate with Artemis Livadarou who will support you through the process.
Booze Cooperativa will provide the space and the public relations.
You always have the option to showcase your creation at Homemotion and if you decide I will be present.
Homemotion gives you not only the space to create but to live also.
