Hey there!

I’m a NYC-based actor and singer with roots in the vibrant beauty of Greece. I carry the essence of the cedar, thyme, olive trees, rugged stone, shimmering sea, and golden sun wherever I go.
 

Growing up on the beautiful islands of Crete and Rhodes, I became what my friends call an "aeriko"—a pixie, a dreamer, a true Sagittarius with my head often in the clouds. My loyal companion, Max the collie, taught me the meaning of unconditional love. Books, dreams, music, and coffee are my everyday essentials.
 

From a young age, storytelling has been my passion. Whether writing my own tales or bringing book characters to life, I've always had a story to tell. Some of my fondest memories are singing with my dad and jamming to Deep Purple, Eric Clapton, Manos Hatzidakis, Dimitris Papadimitriou, Elton John, Mikis Theodorakis, Jules Dassin, Bob Dylan, and so many more.
 

For me, theater and music are one and the same. It's all about the story, whether it’s wrapped in melodies or spoken word.
 

Performing is my way to deeply understand and connect with others, far beyond the surface that everyone easily sees.

Thanks for stopping by!

"Fin Trio" 
@ 
The Cutting Room

Eleanna and her band Fin Trio presented their grand summer concert on June 4 2024 at the historic Cutting Room in Manhattan, New York.
An evening filled with melodies and ethnic soundscapes, offering an unforgettable musical experience. A concert program designed to provide surprises, musical contrasts, and inspirations.
Attendees had the opportunity to enjoy the enchanting Middle Eastern violin of Samir Shukry, which harmoniously blended with the Western keyboard sounds of George Liristis, creating a unique sonic landscape. A special musical collaboration completed by the magnificent voice of Eleanna, who transported the audience with her expressiveness and power.

In addition to the rich musical enjoyment, the concert was accompanied by the screening of the video art Species of Heterotopia. This artistic work has been created by researcher and Ph.D. candidate at Columbia University, Nitouche Anthoussi, adding another dimension to the audience's experience, combining visual stimuli with music.
 

An unforgettable evening at one of New York's most iconic music venues!

Since its establishment, it has hosted some of the biggest names in the music industry (Lady Gaga, Billy Joel, The Shells, etc.) and continues to be a landmark for live music enthusiasts.
