What you'll do
A combination of exercising and exploring the area around Acropolis from the myths to modern times. I will introduce you to the spots and stories that I found from my everyday contact with this beloved area that very few people know . We will meet at the Acropolis museum and we will start our journey by warming up around Acropolis where we will visit an area that looks like an Aegean island. We will stop to strech and find out about mythological Athens and the connection to modern times. We will continue by strengthening our bodies and creativity with fun team excercises inspired by physical theatre outside a magnificent ancient theatre. We will catch our breaths at the hill opposite the Parthenon. And time to go to do some aerial silks at my favourite dance school , no experience needed. Our journey will end with experiencing the most beautiful sunset in the world from a sacred place and we will cool down as the sun goes down. The excersices are fun and playfull based on natural movement of the body and I will share with you my passion for Acropolis, suits everyone. It is a 3 and 1/2 hours of body awakening, you can ask any question and we will have fun, no serious tour here.
I'm an artist from Athens and I have been a street performer in Acropolis area for years, my favorite place in the world! I am an actress, writer, director and teacher of creativity and theatre workshops based on playfulness and physicality. I am a trail runner and I run mountain marathons. I have been involved in sports (track and field, martial arts) and dance all my life. I am an aerialist and I teach aerial silks. As a performer I have studied physical theatre and Alexander technique. I studied ancient Greek literature since very young and I am fascinated by mythology, history and the area around Parthenon. I am also an animal rescuer, I design jewelry and I have my own little all natural cosmetics company. I studied in UK and France and was very lucky to collaborate with artists from all around the world . www.themiseleni.com

Where you'll be
