Nefeli Kentoni (b.1998, Cyprus) is a London based director, writer, and interdisciplinary artist, trying to respond to the remains of a world that endlessly collapses and endlessly erects. The theatrical and cinematic form have been the platform in which she negotiates and experiments the gaps between language and image, the implicit exertions that sustain the performer-viewer relationship, and the lightness/gravity of existence. Weaving together tenderness, absurdity, and humour, she dismantles reality and rebuilds it within unpredictable landscapes.

Nefeli presented her work in Prague Quadrennial, Tate Modern, Barbican Centre, Cyprus State Gallery of Contemporary Art, NiMAC (Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre), The Place, Nicosia International Festival, Buffer Fringe, Mitos – Centre of Performing Arts, and Images & Views of Alternative Cinema. During 2020 she was Writer in Residency at the Tate Exchange, and was also part of the Young Visual Arts Group at the Barbican for two consecutive years. Her short film “Fragility of Language” won the Screendance Short Film Competition at the 36th Leeds International Film Festival.

This February her performance KATABASIS will be at the Nicosia International Festival, and in March Wall of Babel at Camden People’s Theatre.
