Choreographer Maria Lappa in collaboration with Svalbard Company, uses 8 vertebrate images to compose a “kinetic hybrid sculpture” by blending together Physical Theatre, Acrobatik Movement and Japanese Butoh. The use of the artistic Installation acts towards the development of choreographic material, that aims to highlight the existential geometry of the human body and the forces that exert influence on its transformational tendency.

“What form do I need to take in order to fit in this world?” Is the question that hovers throughout the performance; when the human body is treated as an equation of redemption and the Body / Figure seeks its sphericality fearless of crashing. The concept of transformation is placed in a multileveled perspective, enriching the imaginary world but also its potentially symbolic dimension.

The human body is captured as a fluid geometric form that is constantly reshaped. In its effort to map the universe surrounding it, the Body / Figure, dives in unknown mental places where the resultants forces are now imperceptible, hence each type of strategy used leads always to the same result: “Death is a circle of upside-down glasses full of chrysanthemums.”

Throughout the duration of the performance, poems and excerpts of the texts of Dimitris Dimitriadis, Nikolaos Kallas, Allen Ginsberg, Samuel Beckett, Giorgos Vafopoulos are narrated in 5 different languages along with texts of the performers that were written during the creative process. With the support of NEON.
