Monamas Theatre Company is an international theatre company based in London, founded in 2013 by Chrysanthi Avloniti and Anna Kritikou. Monamas Theatre Company is committed to finding new and exciting ways to make theatre by bringing innovative performance practices to the audience and making theatre a unique experience. The company seeks to develop performances that are engaging, entertaining and thought provoking in equal measure aiming to raise awareness and encourage conversation around issues that matter to society.
Monamas’ work is mainly devised and attempts to alter the traditional conventions of space; theme; movement; language and theatrical rules and each performance is the fruit of long periods of research and experimentation with the body and the voice.
The company has been invited to participate in international theatre festivals around the world and has presented work both in theatrical and non-theatrical spaces. Events and performances have been designed and presented in galleries and museums, bookstores and malls, as well as old buildings and house courtyards, in an attempt to bring art to the citizens.
Monamas Theatre Company has collaborated with organisations such as:Tate Modern (UK), London Design Festival (UK), National Theatre of India (IN), AltoFest (IT), Sainsbury Wellcome Center (UK), Foundation of Future London (UK).
Types of events: Theatre, immersive and site specific performances, theatre and movement workshops
