Upcoming Events

27th - 28th JUNE, 2020 

'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.
