Raised in Syros, a Greek island in the Cyclades, Marialena is a dancer, performer, human rights activist and thinker. This year, she is finishing her BA in European law at Maastricht University while writing her final paper on memory and law, in the context of the Nazi trials. Her will to engage with human rights work led her to join INTERNaction, a HR student organization. In 2021, she curated project ‘HOME’, a project that creates a collage of human stories upon the notion of ‘home’. With a background in contemporary dance and physical theater and having participated in artistic productions in the public space, she is interested in the human movement, public space and storytelling. She currently lives in Paris where she follows her Erasmus studies in the Paris 1 – Sorbonne University. She is passionate about individual and collective memory and aspires to start a MA in that direction.
