About Us & Contact

The Metapraxis Ensemble is a London-based, flexible group of musicians and collaborators, established in early 2009. Our productions focus on presenting contemporary music, often in conjunction with compositions from older eras, structured around a certain narrative, and reinforced by extra-musical elements. Allowing some sort of theatrical elements to emerge, our projects are presented as single units, often featuring video / film projections, movement, text reading and staging / lighting effects.

Metapraxis events have taken place in venues all over London, such as LSO St Lukes, Cafe OTO, IKLECTIK, The Space, TripSpace, Iris, Chelsea & Blue Elephant Theatres, as well as in various educational institutions (Brunel, Goldsmiths, Guildhall, Huddersfield, Leeds, etc). In accordance to the tone and texture of each project, we have experimented with the adoption of a wide variety of art forms (theatre, dance, film/video, puppetry), and collaborated with numerous artists (film & theatre directors, designers, choreographers, videographers, lighting designers and others).

Through the years, we have been blessed to work with a number of extraordinary musicians/performers. The current Metapraxis frontline includes: Gregory Emfietzis (curator/auxiliary instruments), Neil Georgeson (keyboards), Wai Nok Angela Hui (percussion), Ilze Ikse (flutes), Myrto Loulaki (voice), and Rebecca Raimondi (violin).
