'Part 6: What does the tongue do?' by Eleana Alexandrou | OLD VINEGAR FACTORY in LIMASSOL
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.
Performances 22, 23, 24, 25 June 2021 at 20:00 | 26 June - two performances - 17:00 & 20:00
Old Vinegar Factory, Limassol
A project co-produced with the Center of Performing Arts MITOS part of the theYard.Residency.21 programme.
SPIRIT - the film | A durational performance by Eleana Alexandrou | Eight hours in two days with four performers broadcasted live from Rialto Theatre in June 2020 is now re-surfacing with a film and a little book. A preview took place end of March for invited guests and an official premiere will be held in Limassol and Nicosia soon.
DATES to be announced.
"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 each day.
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.
