DESCRIPTION

Bastet, the new contemporary dance creation by Greek choreographer Marianna Kavallieratos, becomes the closing performance for the 8th edition of Dance Days Chania Festival in Crete!

During a time when women’s rights are at the center of current public debate, renowned choreographer Marianna Kavallieratos and musician Dom Bouffard present the collective dance Bastet, an ode to female nature's strength and sensuality. Through unadorned choreographic language, intense rhythmic alternations and emotional variations, Bastet highlights the movement and passion of the female body which is uplifted by live music, punk rock' n roll and the explosive sounds that accompany this dance ensemble.


The piece is inspired by the omnipotent Greek sun as well as the ever-present cats of Greece. The six dancers exploit the symbolism of the sun's strength and the feline's intelligence in order to express the age-old struggle of woman to free herself from her ties and to shine, by using her endless spiritual strength which society's norms attempt to stifle. 

Performed by

Gabriella Antonopoulou, Anastasia Brouzioti, Myrto Grapsa, Iro Konti, Dimitra Vlachou

BASTET’s official premiere was scheduled in June 2018, as part of the Summer Nostos Festival, in Athens, Greece. This was commissioned and funded by SNF, in collaboration with SNFCC.
