Dr Katia Savrami is Assistant Professor of Dance Studies and Choreology in the Department of Theatre Studies at the University of Patras, Greece. She received her MA and PhD degrees from the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance at City, University of London.
Her research interests focus on the theory of performance and practice of dance, specifically on dance analysis, choreography, dance neuroscience and education. Her research papers cover a variety of topics, and include “The Human Body in Contemporary Dance: from Costumes to Nakedness”, “Capturing the Moment: Creating Hybrid Performances through Collaborative Polarity”, “Martha Graham’s Lamentation: A Contemporary Revival”, “Does Dance Matter? The Relevance of Dance Technique in Professional Actor Training”, “A Duet between Science and Art: Neural Correlates of Dance Improvisation”, and “Aging Bodies in Contemporary Dance Performances”.
She is the editor of both the series of books in Greek entitled Technes (Arts), published by DIAN Editions, and of Choros International Dance Journal, and is also a member of the International Editorial Board of the journal Research in Dance Education.
Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Katia has authored Ancient Dramatic Chorus through the Eyes of a Modern Choreographer: Zouzou Nikoloudi, which elucidates both the work of a distinguished twentieth-century Greek choreographer and our understanding of classical Greek aesthetic theories.
Katia explains her reasons for publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:
“When I wrote my book on Greek dramatic odes, specifically on the work of an established Greek contemporary choreographer with the title ‘Ancient Dramatic Chorus through the Eyes of a Modern Choreographer: Zouzou Nikoloudi’, I contacted Cambridge Scholars Publishing because they publish high quality books and embrace a vast variety of disciplines in their publications. My experience from the publication of my book has been very positive, and I considered the speed and professionalism during the whole process to be particularly important. This includes the clarity of the contract and the instructions concerning the book format, as well as the availability, support and immediate response of the editorial team on these matters. I am thankful also to the suggestions of Anthony Wright (Assistant Publisher) as to where to send my book for book review: one is currently being prepared by an Associate Professor of Ancient Greek Literature and will appear in the Classical Journal. I am grateful for this excellent publishing process and I look forward to future collaboration.”
