Article at "to vima newspaper:
LSA was founded in 2000 in Athens by Maria Chaniotaki.
Distinguished practitioners from theater, dance, art and film have visited LSA, as Lectures for workshops and courses since 2000.
Many projects were based on the artistic and creative aim of LSA's Programs such as," Inverted thread " Perfromance Installation at BIOS Theatre (2008) and " Inverted Thread - the fairy tale" at Askisis Theatre (2009). Both Performances were based more on the impact of the narrative image, space, sight, sound smell experience and time and less in speech and dialogues.
