Eleni Ploumi (1988 – Thessaloniki, GR) is a performer and choreographer currently based in Tilburg, NL. She studied Theater Dance Performance at the Contemporary/Urban department at FONTYS Dance Academy, from which she graduated from the Bachelor of Choreography program (2016). Before she entered the academy, she was a hip hop and house dancer, for she constantly explores the fusion between urban dances and contemporary/theater dance.
She has been mostly busy with performing, and amongst others, she has been mainly working with T.R.A.S.H. Dance Performance Group (2015 & 2016), with Katja Heitmann (2014-2017) and recently with United-C. In her first post-graduation choreography, ‘POUTANES – a confrontation with pleasure’ she dances herself. Her performativity is characterized by high and intense physical activity combined with theatrical elements, invariably searching for physical and mental boundaries.
