Annie Khoury is a performance artist based in Nicosia, Cyprus.

She studied drama at the Drama School of the National Theatre of Northern Greece (2013-16) and then received short-term training in Cinematography (Film School - Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 2016-), Contemporary Dance (2018) Dance Teacher Training - Ballroom (A. Murray Dancing Studio, 2018) and Dance Therapy (University of Athens, 2019).

She creates performances with original text/poetry and choreography that use different materials and mediums, moving between dance, theatre and visual arts. 
Playing around perception and senses, her work is exploring the contemporary possibilities of the ancient greek triptych of Movement-Poetry-Music.

She is also collaborating with other artists as an actress/dancer/performer,  is facilitating drama and movement therapy workshops for children and adults and has structured an original movement 'playing method' for performers, the “Space Time Energy Movement Research Method / S.T.E.M.’’.
