The title of 9.25, which premiered at this summer’s Athens Epidauros Festival, refers to the passage of a train. Its repetitive departures and arrivals symbolize leaving behind, starting anew, and the constant cycle of life. Time and our place within it are central themes to the dance group’s latest piece, and this is reflected in many ways.
With the help of impressively choreographed acrobatics in and around them, giant wheels provides a constant throughout the piece, asking us to consider those moments where we stop and look around, realizing time is sweeping by, consuming everything.
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.
9.25 is supported by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports
