'SPIRIT' | A durational performance by Eleana Alexandrou | Four hours with four performers | LIVE BROADCAST | 18:00 - 22:00
"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."
The performance is a dance marathon. The goal is one: to keep dancing until the last minute. The marathon will last four hours.
The audience has free access and may connect through their screens from a space of their choice with a coffee or a snack, for as long as they decide or come and go as they choose.
The condition is new and creates a number of challenges for everyone. The rehearsals took place through screens in bedrooms or kitchens, where there was space for a body to move. Due to the restrictive measures, SPIRIT will be released live on the internet. What the viewer will see is not the documentation and presentation of a performance but a live durational work designed for the screen.

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.
