Ki omOs kineitai is a dance company well-known for its combination of acrobatics, contemporary dance and other creative disciplines. With the premiere of 9.25, the popular group will mark its second appearance at the Athens Epidaurus Festival. The title ‘9.25’ refers to the passing of a train, whose repetitive departure and arrival symbolizes both leaving behind and starting anew. Throughout the piece, performers are involved with a giant wheel-like construction, whose steady movement is a constant, as the piece progresses, gesturing towards the human condition within the vague and obscure definition of time.
Ki omOs kineitai was founded in 2003 by dancer Christina Sougioultzi and circus performer Bentancor Camilo. Today, the group is a collaboration of artists from diverse kinesiological backgrounds, performing complex physical performances where dance, circus and performance techniques meet and blend. Previous performances of the group include Betelgez, paRЯaiso, and in collaboration with the music group Hainides, Erotokritos.
