DESCRIPTION

A choreographic allegory about the endless construction and deconstruction of human relationships, the contradictions which unite and separate us, the social utopia.

The new project of A Priori Dance co. entitled ‘form.at’ is a duet for two performers (namely Eleonora Ilia and Maria Papadopoulou) which dives into the wealth of tradition and draws inspiration from the folk legend of ‘Tou gefiriou tis Artas’, while peeking at the Theater of the absurd and the Rhinoceros of Eug. Ionesco, examining the function of the individual in any given social-historical context.

 

Form.at interweaves diverse kinetic references, creating a personal dictionary with the influences which incorporate from the Epirotic step of traditional dances and martial arts, to the qualities and dynamics of individual movement.

 

From the prime cell of every society, the human duo, to the packs of large societies, the question arises: Do we function together or alone? If the former is true, in which ways do we choose to be together? Human relationships are constructed and deconstructed again and again, thus the effort is not abandoned. The choice of ‘together’ entails the sacrifice of the individual past, keeping only its necessary fragments: the beauty of human existence. Is it possible that the contradiction, with which humanity is moving throughout history, swaying between prudence and absurdity, leads to a reverse direction once more? Is human transformation utopian and therefore every new form of society?

With the financial support of the Greek Ministry of Culture (YPPOA).
