Performances have been presented in Athens Festival, Onassis Stegi, Greek Opera House, the Athens Biennial, Santarcangelo Festival, BIOS, Panta Théâtre, UM Gallery, Lofft, Societaetstheater, Fivizzano 27, Teatro Rasi, Festival Primavera dei Teatri. The feature film The Lair co-produced with the Greek Film Centre premiered at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival 2019.
