midday dream

Bio

 Maria Alexea  having as origin and inspiration her small village of Taygetus Peloponnese ( Alagonia)  was inevitably since childhood inclined  towards a great love for nature,  which made her to act  for the trees, the sky , for the earth at her feet.’ Seeking in this nature the most logical beautiful forms she  tried to find the movements which expressed these forms ‘swaying the body rhythmically as if blown by the  wind ,  achieving  an imitation of the tree or the  wave or cloud, and all natural forces which in Greek mythology were represented by gods and nymphs and later expressed in all great music of Bach and Beethoven.’ Greek positions and movements  are the positions and movements of nature and therefore they are universal  and constitute the art  and love of humanity for all time”

The biography of Greek artist Maria Alexea covers a wide range of studies in Music (Diploma of Cello, Wuerzburg, Germany), studies in Dance (Salzburg), Film Studies (Stavrakos School, Athens), as well as Science (Diploma of Neuroscience, Sussex University, United Kingdom) and Philosophy (Platonic philosophy of Art, Sussex University United Kingdom).
