Ariadne Mikou is a Greek-born dance artist-researcher currently residing in Italy. She holds a PhD in Interdisciplinary Choreographic Research that was fully funded by the University of Roehampton (UK).

With a background as an architect, dance performer and choreographer, her practice is located at the crossover between corporeal, spatial and screen-based arts.

She is co-founder of the nomadic micro-festival [SET.mefree] Dance & Movement on Screen, a platform focused on screendance curation, education and mentoring. Her writing on screendance issues and expanded choreographic practices and processes has been published in peer-reviewed international journals and book anthologies. She is a selected artist for Creative Europe’s Migrating Artists Project-Challenging Dance and Cinema across Europe (mAPs) and a Research Assistant for the SPIN project Memory in Motion: Re-Membering Dance History (2019–2022) at the Department of Philosophy and Cultural Heritage at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

In 2021, Ariadne was awarded a Research Grant for the action-research project Dancing Museums-The Democracy of Beings from Ca’ Foscari University of Venice to conduct, among other activities, video editing and research on the key themes of the digital rooms of the virtual museum that is currently hosted in this website.
