Updated: Jan 3, 2019


The first day of Online Roundtable A involved a series of tasks (or games) for the research team that helped to get to know each other. The RE-FUSE team consists of Tzeni Argyriou (GR) – choreographer, Argyro Chioti (GR) – stage director, Thanasis Deligiannis (GR/NL) – composer, George Dumitriu (RO/NL) – violinist & violist, Pepe García (MX/NL) – percussionist, Richard Haynes (AU/CH) – clarinetist, Kieran Klaassen (NL/US) – network programmer, Els Mondelaers (BE/NL) - singer, Roelof Pothuis (NL) – set designer & lighting designer, Efthimis Theou (GR/DE) - actor, Bas Wiegers (NL) - conductor.


Here is a brief structure of the roundtable, including selected fragments of its content:
