Teleporta is a door ("porta" in Greek means "door") that leads us into magical worlds.We travel through time and space, explore the world and express ourselves. It’s a mix & match theatre workshop where different arts are combined and projects are held (community theatre, site-specific theatre, museum projects, yoga stories, crafting etc). They all result in a devised piece of theatre, a unique performance made from scratch where everyone can participate in any way they prefer, on stage or off stage. Children, teenagers, adults become teleporters -in English or Greek- through drama games, improvisation, role playing, dramatisation, storytelling, pantomime, puppetry, movement, music and songs, props making, short film making, writing and the use of media.
