The group focuses on experimenting and producing performances based on theoretical, dramaturgic and movement research. The aim of Aerites Dance Company is to create artistic actions as a result of the synergy between dance, performing arts, poetry, theatrical practice and new technology. The company has been awarded with the Ermis prize (2008) and with 3 Evge prices (2009, 2007).

With the work d.ΟPΑ! (dopamines of post-Athenians), Aerites were chosen by the General Administration for New Generations to represent Greece at the 14th Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean (City of Skopjie 3th-12th September 2009). d.OPA went on to come in 1st place, judged by a panel of industry professionals inclusive of creative directors from important international festivals, in order to take part in the 8th Platform for Contemporary Dance at the prestigious Megaro Moussikis in Athens, June 2010. Finally, in October 2010, Aerites Dance Company was selected to be in the ten finalist companies for Aerowaves festival in London.
