Nina Naï is a drag performer and baritone. The person behind the curtain is Georgios Iatrou, an operatic baritone based in Germany who is working in opera houses around the world. Nina is his alter ego, and can do all the things that Georgios cannot dare.
Georgios has sang important roles of the operatic repertoire such as Figaro in Barbiere di Siviglia, Orfeo by Monteverdi, Marcello in La Bohème, Valentin in Faust, in Opera Houses like Oper Köln, Greek National Opera, Irish National Opera, Grand Theater Avignon, Aalto Theater Essen, Theater Massenet, Dortmund Theater and oper Bonn, and has worked with directors such as Graham Vick, Laurent Pelly, D. Hilsdorf and Julian Chavaz.
Nina has been performing for about two years in clubs, stages and—during the “Plague”—online in different drag festivals. With her last project “DRAUMA”, she participated in the international competition Goodmesh concours and achieved 3rd Prize. In summer 2021 she sang the first ever live drag art song recital under the title “It’s a sin” with the exceptional pianist and conductor Yorgos Ziavras at the Festival Junger Künstler in Bayreuth.
The aim of Nina is to merge worlds that seem impossible to meet like lyric singing and drag performance.
Nina co-created the Haus of Karma, a drag haus based in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Ursus is a designer, an illustrator, and a dreamer. They seek to explore and manifest a deep understanding of human perception and how human beings interact with their outside world.
As a self-taught semi-professional in this field, Ursus has worked mainly within the Greek queer scene—either with individual artists or organizations, festivals, and activist groups.
In addition, they are attending an undergraduate course on History & Archaeology in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
When they aren’t drinking their third cup of coffee in front of their laptop, Ursus loves immersing themselves in role-playing games and fantasy settings, or reading about classical antiquity.
