With their tight embrace, Alexandros Vardaxoglou and Dafin Antoniadou form a distraught being waking from unknown depths. We witness it struggling to split into two, both sides seeking to assert their individuality at one moment, grasping for shelter and comfort at another.
As Vanishing Point unfolds, we are left to wonder if this phenomenon is science fiction or some nightmare made reality. “Dismembered and incomplete at the edges of life” is how the creators put it, when the human body appears to be a destination reached, yet unreachably distant at the same time.
Dafin Antoniadou, Alexandros Vardaxoglou, and Constantine Skourlis have been working together since 2019. Their output revolves mainly around choreography, as well as sound and film practices. Their collaboration has led to
the creation of the “Vanishing Point” concept, which to date has been further developed into three distinct works: “Vanishing Point” (choreography, 2020), “DEEP HORIZON” (multi-channel transmedia installation, 2022), and “VANISHING POINT” (film, 2022).
