Konstantinos Mihos

Konstantinos Mihos in the summer of 1980 while living in Athens Greece read a very brief description of Contact Improvisation. He perceived Contact as a way to an art form that would be based on the communication and empowerment of its practitioners which could constitute also a valid theatrical form. He proceeded to have a full formal dance training, studied with choreographers/ teachers in New York and San Francisco, founded his own dance company, created numerous works for professional dancers, amateurs, elderly people, young children and refugees, presented in mainstream venues in Greece and in international festivals, as well as in a refugee housing complex, hospitals, old prison cells, a military museum, shipyards and received awards for choreography, taught Contact and Improvisation in academic environments and professional dance schools, created the Wrong Movement Dance Studio which today has evolved into a collective space for teaching, C. I. jams, performances and concerts, introduced working with disability in dance in Greece, organised the 1993 and 2004 European Contact Improvisation Teachers Exchange in Athens. During the 2008’s uprising in Greece, Konstantin Mihos taught a C. I. class under the title “Touch the cop” for two hundred people in the occupied Opera House of Athens. Up until today this is the C. I. session he remembers most. On the 13th of August 2019 he will enter his 60th year of age. Still he keeps searching and pursuing what he first thought Contact might be(come).
