Athena Kokoronis is an artist living in New York since 2005. Her art practice revolves around studying, referencing, researching and embodiment within the domestic space. Domestic Performance Agency (DPA) is the name and the space of practice for a choreographic process that gives attention to aspects of performance production, curation, food, cloth, fungi, and searches for the creative economy within these realms that begins and extends out of domestic scale with hospitality. Choreographic problem-solving with time, sensitivity, and intimacy are at the core of the DPA vision. Costume design is elemental to DPA process. Costume collaborations have been with Jasmine Hearn, Tatyana Tennebaum, Jessie Young, Angie Pittman, David Thomson, Marion Spencer, Tyler Rai, Kensaku Shinohara, and Daria Fain. Holistic Micro-Patronages, like DPA Soup Subscriptions, operate all year long and are currently open to new subscribers. In 2018, CookBook: Domestic Performance Agency was published by Yonkers International Press (YIP), in conjunction with Dance & Process series at the Kitchen. A second edition was released in 2019 in conjunction with The New School (NYC) centennial exhibition. DPA is currently represented in Lydia Rodrigues Collection (NYC )
DraftWork is presented, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
