'SPIRIT' by Eleana Alexandrou at Rialto theatre| A durational performance of four hours with five performers | 18:00 - 22:00
"My action is not so much about the dance itself but the experience of time through it, the experience of dance as an act of thinking. The experience of physical exhaustion, of deterioration. The experience of spending time together hopefully until the end."
The work is based on Re.move, a performance project that came out of Eleana's 9-month long residency in 2018 at the Dance House Lemesos as part of the 'Moving the New' Residency Programme.

'Loitering' by Arianna Marcoulides at the 1st Cyprus Choreography Showcase at Rialto Theatre | A collaboration with Eleana Alexandrou, Eva Korae and Panos Bartzis | 19:00
'LOITERING means to stand or wait somewhere without an obvious purpose.
We are waiting for something to happen.
We are waiting for something to change.
All we do is walk in anticipation.'
The earth is about to explode.
If we die tomorrow, we die.
Someone please save us.
This is a piece about waiting. This is a piece about acting. This is a piece about time. This is a piece about the world. This is a piece about the state we are in today. This is a piece about us.
What are you going to do about it?
