Martha Pasakopoulou, a dance artist and Onassis Scholar (2009-2010), performed The Wishing Well, a solo work created by the choreographer Eva Recacha, at Sadler’s Wells Lilian Baylis Theatre in London on March 27, 2014, as part of the Dear Devil evening curated by the choreographer. The piece explores themes of authority, power, dreaming and rebellion. The work has been commissioned by The Place Prize 2013 choreographic competition (sponsored by Bloomberg) and was the winner of the audience’s prize for 3 evenings.

Martha recently collaborated with the Onassis Cultural Foundation, working as a mentor along with another 9 dance artists for the Dancing to Connect educational program, delivering workshops and introducing creativity through movement in secondary school students in Patras and Athens. The program was organized by OCC, Battery dance company (NY) and the Embassy of USA in Greece.

Martha Pasakopoulou has graduated from the Professional dance school of N. Kontaxaki and holds a Chemistry degree from the National University of Athens. She completed her MA studies in dance and performance at the London Contemporary Dance School (with Distinction), being supported by the Onassis Foundation, Costopoulos Foundation and The Schilizzi Foundation. Since 2009 that she moved to London, she has been working with various choreographers such as Wally Cardona, Rick Nodine, Eva Recacha, Seke Chimutengwende, Robert Clark, Jozsef Csaba Hajer, Bruno Isakovic, Robin Dingemans and with the companies Tilted Productions, Requardt & Rosenberg, backsteinhaus produktion (Stuttgart), Aerites Dance Company (Athens) and with the artist Tino Sehgal at the Tate Modern Museum for These Associations (nominated for Turner Prize 2013).
