AMID

MULTIMEDIA DANCE PERFORMANCE

2019

With Chrysanthi Badeka 

 

LOCATION

Athens, GR

AMID evolves into a stage installation, where costume-mask, sound, light, and visuals provide sensory stimuli, highlighting various aspects of the space - moments and functions that seek to emerge through the body. These functions weave a network between the body and the space, shaping their ever changing structure. It is like a living, sculptural woven fabric that moves in and around the body and the space, reflecting their shapes in its weave.

The choreography  is structured through a series of episodes where calm and silence, bliss or anxiety, a tropical or frozen atmosphere can be revealed. It is a reflection and study of the exchange of the two worlds: the interior with the outside, the virtual with the real, the past with the future. An attempt at visual and acoustic reconciliation of mentality and poetry, where the function and the lacking occur in the aithēr*

* in Homeric Greek, aithēr means "clear sky." The existence of aithēr has been formulated from antiquity up to the nineteenth century and was reworded in the 20th as the hypothetical "field of everything’’.
