Euripides Laskaridis, a Greek director and performer, studied acting in Athens and directing in New York thanks to an Onassis Foundation scholarship. Since 1995, he performs and collaborates with directors such as Dimitiris Papaioannou and Robert Wilson. In 2016, he was awarded the Pina Bausch Fellowship and spent three months alongside director and choreographer Lemi Ponifasio. In 2000, he started directing his own work, with staged and site-specific performances, as well as award-winning short films. Euripides artistic universe is first inspired by ridicule and transformation, and at the intersection of theatre, dance, and visual arts. In 2009, he founded OSMOSIS, a performing arts company that offers him to collaborate with many artists, artistically closed to him. Euripides and OSMOSIS have been invited in major theatre and festivals over the world. Euripides is invited by institutions or schools in Europe to teach and lead workshops, sharing his artistic practices. He presents Relic for this edition of Camping.

Works of Euripides Laskaridis are notable for being at the intersection of dance, theatre and visual arts. During the workshop, Euripides Laskaridis facilitates performative tools coming from his artistic research on ridicule and transformation. In combination with his background in physical theatre, grotesque yet poetic theatre and Ancient Greek drama, he uses anything considered exterior, working
in-depth, from the outside in. With attention paid to each artistic background, he will guide the imagination of the performers to reveal their creative potential.
