#ABOUT

Integrated in the body of ‘Higher States’, ‘Thanaton, Rough Cut’ is the unrefined effort of the fourth part of Kiriakos Hadjiioannou thematics, which signifies the biography of a body through existential states, in view of possible future perspectives.

In an eternal altercation with death, the body is conceived as an element of substance of oneself and a boundary of social action. Studying various philosophical sources, one can detect two basic theories about time. One has Greek origins and advocates the closed, circular time; it is based in cosmology, having nature, the universe and the world as an archetype and being symbolized as a circle or a sphere. The other, with Jewish origins, adopts the open, linear time and is based in eschatology oriented to history, having the straight line or the arrow moving straight as a symbol. ‘Thanaton, Rough Cut’ focuses on the above controversial approaches of the circle and the straight line, thus creating a research field in which a series of binary concepts can be recreated: body language and the ‘speaking body’, sound and melody, time and duration. Movement in this sense is not conceived as a function which resists the ‘immobility’ of death, but as an act which reforms matter into something new.

#READ MORE

Having these two basic theories as an axis, Kiriakos Hadjiioannou comes together with Jeremy Wade on stage, as iconic representations of the body and soul. They appear as living pillars who float and haunt what is literally the other side of our spatial design, using death as a metaphor of awakening. Through this, we are invoked to reflect on time, beyond its eschatological interpretations. Together they wonder or even question contemporary perceptions of the body and how it is associated with our thoughts over death, the possible extensions of the body after life and the agreements we make as a society.

In a dark and queer environment, a club, with experimentation as a vehicle, the artists experience different deaths – the death of theatre, value, sense, attachment. With this research, they feature the death of western society in the future, conveying anguished resistance strategies to the dominant forces of regularity on stage.
