DESCRIPTION

After four successful performances at the Main Stage of the Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, and the creation's French premiere during the festival "Rencontres Choregraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis" in Paris, "ANΩNYMO" returns in Greece for its final presentation to the Greek audience before the piece tours internationally in 2019-2020. This time, "ANΩNYMO" will be presented at the Main Stage of Kalamata Dance Megaron, during the 24th edition of Kalamata International Dance Festival!  

 

Anonymity and privacy convert into a paradoxical reality where natural presence, intimacy and contact are progressively being replaced by digital reality. Anonymo researches the course of the artistic practice originally being the starting line of human connection and social cohesion up to the present digital era. Tzeni Argyriou creates an intriguing, multi-media research performance, proposing an innovative movement language generated by the notions of somatic memory, human contact and team cohesion; Founded on the routes of initiation and participation rituals, Anonymo attempts to create a path that connects the digital with the somatic, in search of a present space. Quirky and multi-dimensional, interesting and amusing, Argyriou’s choreographic work introduces the audience to an abstract world where dance takes human communication beyond music or words.

Performed by: Hermes Malkotsis, Dimitra Mertzani, Konstantinos Papanikolaou, Ioanna Paraskeuopoulou, Stavroula Siamou, Nancy Stamatopoulou, Dimitris Sotiriou
