DESCRIPTION

Elena Antoniou attempts to expand the boundaries of staged experience, this time at the Main Stage of the Onassis Stegi during the 6th Young Choreographers Festival. 

For her latest project, “MAINSTAGE”, Elena Antoniou presents a performance that re-examines and deconstructs existing spatio-theatrical conventions, calling upon those present to form living connections with her art in spite of its intangible and ephemeral nature. Her aim is to overturn deep-seated hierarchies that order viewer/performer interaction, and to venture a shift in the ways staged experience is viewed more generally.

 

While dance has been trying to jump beyond both the staged environment and entrenched representations of the body since the 1970s, these approaches are being intensely reformulated in the present day. Artists such as Elena Antoniou are reinventing the very meaning of an experience that moves viewers – in both the physical and emotional sense – and encourages them to see beyond the obvious. This liberation of the gaze also signifies a shift towards experiences perceived by the body in its totality. 

A group of people between 16 and 65+ years old, with or without previous performing experience, will participate in the performance.
