In Wonder(?)Land – Στη χώρα των θ_υμάτων

a registered performance from an unregistered dancer

‘In Wonder(?)Land’ is a physical theatre performance, about Cyprus as a country, a society. It is a work about what can become a miracle but turns out to be a victim instead. This performance deals with the incongruities of the Cypriot society and the behaviour of the politicians. The thirst for power, the political and social responsibilities are in constant conflict with the need of the typical citizen for survival.

The choreographer says about the performance: «I am Eleana Alexandrou and I am deeply worried and concerned about the place where I have chosen to live (for now). I want to speak with honesty. I have created a satirical performance about Cyprus as a country, a society, a democracy. A performance about nature, artists, artistic nature; about black people, gay people, the disabled, the fat, the short, the old; about parents and children, life and living things… I want to be the ruler of Cyprus.»
