DESCRIPTION

Greek choreographer and director Natassa Zouka presents a new creation titled “LIMINAL”, a hybrid of dance and music performance, inspired by the poetry and the haikus written by Hieromonk Symeon. Three virtuous dancers, four vocal performers, and one viola da gamba on stage confabulate with the haikus, in an effort to reveal the essence of life hidden in 17 syllables.

The performance focuses in the means and methods with which written haikus are transformed in movement patterns and form a kinetic vocabulary. Vividly and often humorously, the performers create images that point out the percipience found in nature and life itself. The ultimate goal of the director’s approach is to reveal the concise, stripped and minimal wholeness of the moment, letting the spectator enrich it with their own physical and mental presence. Body and voice coexist on stage, both representing the primordial bearers of the history of the world, narrating the world’s existential wandering with a haiku written in black and white.

Choreographer’s note:

The greatest source of inspiration has been Symeon’s poetry itself.

 The dialogue with Symeon’s haikus and poems has provided to all of us

both ultimate joy and a great responsibility.

His words, so carefully chosen, are filled with Greek light, colors, and life,

while the punctuation marks around them transform into butterflies

vividly fluttering from one word to another.
