Forum Artistic Research


Faidra Chafta Douka

Faidra Chafta Douka is a composer based in Berlin. She studied composition and experimental music theatre at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with Michalis Lapidakis, at the Hochschule für Musik Dresden with Manos Tsangaris and Mark Andre, and at the Universität der Künste Berlin with Daniel Ott. Since 2019 she is a doctoral candidate for artistic research at the Kunstuniversität in Graz and ZHdK in Zürich, where she researches compositional methods starting from the body of the performer, the process of rehearsing, issues of notation as a visualisation and expression of thought, and the concept of ritual. Her artistic activity includes instrumental, music theatre and performance pieces often exploring process, repetition and the poetry deriving from the captured fictional frame of a live performance. In the recent years she focuses more on working in groups, as well as closely with performers creating the space for constant and immediate interaction and feedback.
