In September 2016, Anna Kapousizi, Theater Instructor, left Greece for the United States to learn more about the Alexander Technique and its application in theater with people with neuromuscular disorders. Anna had been working with MDA Hellas, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and as a result of this experience she wished to research more on the medical and artistic implications of acting exercises for people with limited body abilities.
Her research took her first to South Carolina where she collaborated with the Neurosciences Institute in Charlotte and then to New York where she staged a performance at the American Center for the Alexander Technique under the supervision of Bill Connington, lecturer in acting at Yale School of Drama and ACAT member.
In Athens, Anna is the founder of the Artimeleia Theater Group.
