DESCRIPTION

How is the perception of time affected through led connotations, and what is activated through spectatorship? 

“17 gestures forced and uttered" studies the process of narratives using as a reference point December 2008 events. Five performers re-enact 15 photos from the riots in Athens plus 2 out of context, creating a series of images and gestures that rhythmically repeat in the space, transform and distort.

The work builds a mechanism based on memory and uses photos as a reference point, words as utterance and corporeality as the source of meanings and transformation in the present. 17 gestures function as fractals that articulate narratives and readings. The work proposes a choreographic environment that explores the relations of image, memory, dance and spectatorship.

 

Performered by: Ioanna Paraskevopoulou, Nontas Damopoulos, Yorgos Kotsifakis, Venetsiana Kalbaliki, Natalia Baka

The production is funded by the Ministry of Culture and Sports (2017-18).
