The Vis Motrix dance group was founded in 2001 by dancer and choreographer Konstantino Gerardo. The first Vis Motrix production with the title “in dreams” was presented at the Sofouli Theatre – Thessaloniki New Art Stage in May 2001. Up to this day they have organized their own productions, shows, performances and improvisation nights with the participation of music groups, while at the same time they have participated in various art and dance festivals in Greece and abroad.
