Notes from Eleana Alexandrou:

"Often, I have questions about the very function of the art of dance in relation to the place and community I live in.  How does the viewer relate to a contemporary performance?  I seek communication pathways between the spectator and the work whose main ingredient is the experience of the body."

MARCH, 2022

'Part 6: What does the tongue do?' by Eleana Alexandrou | OLD VINEGAR FACTORY in LIMASSOL

 

After a series of performances in 2021, the work was selected to be part of MEANWHILE the parallel programmed for SHOWCASE 2022 with a series of choreographic works presented to programmers from festivals abroad.

 

A collaboration with Arianna Marcoulides.

 

How do we kiss? How much do we kiss? Who do we kiss?

 

The work deals with the act of kissing, a precious moment between two people where the personal space merges and speech stops. The kiss as an achievement, a moment of connection but also a potential act of discrimination and rejection.
