Kinemo is a method of acting and moving on stage based on physical theatre. However, it has its own singularities and its own grammar and vocabulary. Kinemo is a neologism derived from the abbreviation of the words kinaesthetic and emotional. The mix of these two elements (kinaesthesia and emotion) plays structural role in the theatrical research that belongs to this kind of physical theatre. Its renovating technique helps the actors to find their own ways of expression and activate hidden inner qualities of stage energy. The theory and the practice of Kinemo is now published in English giving the opportunity to a wider audience to get familiar with it. https://dodonipublications.gr/shop/theatro/meletes-gia-to-theatro/kinemo/
