Performing Artists

My name is Irene Theotokatou, and I'm a Co-Counselor from Athens, Greece. I am Margie Doyle Papadoupoulou's Alternate Area Reference Person.

RC has made and is making a tremendous difference in my life.

I was born in Greece but I grew up in Zimbabwe. I work as an actor/director in a small theatre company which I co-founded in 1995. Our major commitment is to produce work that examines and presents important issues in a way that empowers people.

In RC I am presently leading a women's support group. In the past I have led women's workshops, an anti-racism support group, and a support group for creativity that took a group of artists, writers, and this performer from creative limbo to once again actively pursuing our careers. I do not take credit for this success (each person performed his or her own "miracle") but I'm glad I had the clarity to create the support that I, myself, needed.

I have felt a great desire lately to get in touch with other RCers in my profession. In looking through the back of Present Time I couldn't find an Information Coordinator for Performing Artists. I have thought about it, and if no one else is available, I would be very willing to take it on. Margie says I would be the best person for the job. She may be right. (I'm going to boldly let those last two sentences stand as they are!)
