He is developing a network of artistic collaborators between Europe and Canada based on theatre research projects. Current Soundings take place in Athens Thessaloniki Iraklion Crete Berlin Graz Zagreb Novi Sad Stuttgart / Tubingen Ludwigsburg Bruxelles, Amsterdam Quebec City Montreal and Buck Lake. In association with MadDam, an independent theatre group based in Athens and other independent groups in Canada and Europe, he developed a major international project entitled Ancient Mirrors /Modern Voices, a series of one woman shows based on the archetypal figures of Medusa, Kassandra, Psyche and Eros, Pandora and Pasiphae which were performed in Athens and Thessaloniki. He is currently organizing a major project in association with Compagnie Achtli in Bruxelles involving Canada, Europe and Mexico, with the working title Archetypes of love lust & Eros a multi- lingual and multicultural performance. The professional experience of Mr. Nieoczym, his great intuition, his ability to uncover the depths of the human soul, which pulsates behind each human mask, allows each participant to make a significant step along their individual artistic path.
