Fenia Kotsopoulou

Fenia Kotsopoulou is an award-winning Greek cross-disciplinary artist based in Lincoln (UK). She navigates, investigates, and explores the fields of performance (art), dance, video, photography and their intersections. She holds an MFA in Choreographing Live Art from the University of Lincoln (UK), a BA(Hons) in Dance from the National Dance Academy of Rome (Italy), and a BA in Italian Language and Literature from the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki (Greece).

In the past few years, as a (dance) performer, producer and visual practitioner, Fenia’s solo works, as well as those prepared in close-collaboration digital artist, Daz Disley, were shown at many festivals and art platforms and received several prizes and awards.

Alongside her practice, Fenia teaches at the Master of Theatre Practices in the University of ArtEZ (Arnhem, The Netherlands) and since 2016, she has been an artist-in-residence at x-church in Gainsborough (UK).


In their cross-media project, Kotsopoulou & Walsh demonstrate how today’s photographic & performance practices can challenge patriarchy by referring to the history of documenting ‘deviance’ in women.
