Anthi Kettirou was born and raised in Nicosia, Cyprus. From a very young age she was involved in rhythmic gymnastics, which was also the starting point of her involvement with dance, since ballet is an integral part of daily training. She was the champion of Cyprus for a number of years and as a member of the national team holds, among others, a bronze medal in the international tournament Golden Hoop (Bulgaria 1995), a gold medal in the Panhellenic Championship (Thessaloniki 1996) and a silver medal in the World Gymnasiade (China 1998).
She studied contemporary dance and dance theater at Fontys University in the Netherlands. Approaching dance as a form of holistic art, she collaborates with artists from various fields (fine art, photography, animation, theater, music). Her inspiration comes mainly from everyday life and human interactions, but also from her interest in experimental movement.
In addition to creating her own works, she has been involved in the choreography and kinesiology of theatrical performances. She is very interested in the effect of time on the body and for this reason she deals with performances of long duration (4 hours and more), starting with the work of D.I.R.T, which was presented in 2014 at GNARLfest.
She was a founding member of Luna Rosa Theater Company, a theatrical group that creates works with social and cultural content, theatrical experiences inspired by human relationships and interactions, diversity, the environment and daily life. Their works stand out for the experience they offer to the public, which is immersive, but also for the way they are made as they create based on the methodology of devised theater. Part of the company's experimentation on the influence of "inclusive theater" in strengthening the concept of "community" was the creation of the first children's theater in Cyprus, exclusively for ages 0-18 months.
Anthi is the founder of the cultural association ART|HAUS, as well as the creator and curator of the international festival THE PODIUM, which is a platform for interdisciplinary artists involved in the field performing arts.
