Art discipline: 
Faidra Chafta Douka (b. 1990 in Athens, Greece) studied composition and experimental music theater at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with Michalis Lapidakis and Dimitris Papageorgiou, at the Hochschule für Musik Dresden with Mark Andre, Manos Tsangaris and Franz Martin Olbrisch and the Universität der Künste Berlin with Daniel Ott. Since 2019 she is a Doctoral student for artistic research in the field of music theatre at the Kunstuniversität in Graz in cooperation with KHdZ in Zürich.

Her artistic activity is focusing on music theatre, specifically on audiovisual semiotics and processes of communication through (inter)actions of human bodies, as well as the notation questions that arise in this context. Moreover her pieces explore issues of duration, form, performance formats and the poetry deriving from the captured fictional frame of a live performance.
Important projects / Exhibitions: 
In the past years she has participated in numerous seminars and masterclasses. Her pieces have been performed in workshops, festivals and other concerts among others by Ensemble Proton Bern, Ensemble Ascolta, Manufaktur für aktuelle Musik, Dissonart Ensemble, AuditivVokal Dresden, Dresdner Philharmonie and trio sostrenuto. She has held a scholarship from the Ad Infinitum Foundation (AIF) and the Deutschen Akademischen Austauschdienst (DAAD), as well as the Elsa-Neumann Stipendium des Landes Berlin, and she has been a resident artist at the Künstlerhof Schreyahn in Niedersachsen.
