ROAD TO THE OCEAN

 

Τhrough a combination of various practices, we will focus on the awareness our movement choices. We will experiment with the detailed movement of the hands and the feet’s connection to the ground, while playing around various rhythmical patterns. 
Finally, we will also share some phrases from our latest duet “Omen of Fάrιsa”.

DANAE & DIONYSIOS

Danae and Dionysios are two artists from Greece. They have been collaborating since 2015 and so far they have created together four productions, "UNCIA", "ATMA", "Free At Last : Rerooted" and "Valley of the Hummingbirds".​ 

As apprentices of nature, its animals and indigenous civilisations they create stories from the side of the one who was or still is untamed. True facts and myths of tribes and wild animals which didn’t make it or didn’t adjust become the canvas of their stories. Ιn their creations they propose harmonic relationships between nature and its living beings, breaking the stereotypical hierarchy, while the dreamlike atmosphere which usually wraps their work takes the audience into a journey in space and time where it becomes a witness of a conflict between chaos and order. Trying to balance between accessible and pioneer, they support the idea that art is an accessible medium of communication which can create a dynamic yet fragile language.​

Their works have been presented in Europe, Asia and Central America and have received 8 awards at international institutions, while their collaborations include theatres and festivals like Onassis Foundation, Theater Rotterdam, Staatstheater Braunschweig, Athens and Epidaurus Festival and more.
