#ABOUT

ANΩNYMO draws from traditional folk dances from all over the world to articulate the social disconnect that has become all too familiar to many in recent times. The result is a celebration of human connection through shared joy and collective dance. 
 

The piece's choreographic approach takes the form of a physical ceremony, a contemporary ritual that recalls the power of bodies dancing together. In this way, the piece invites the audience back to a time when art did not bear a creator’s name, but was a practice that brought people closer and maintained social cohesion – the earliest rituals of initiation and participation. 
 

The first dances did not belong to anybody because they belonged to everybody. Someone made the first move, another picked it up and step by step the different components formed a pattern. From one body to the next, dances moved through the centuries, accompanying every human ritual: weddings, death, war, peace.
