CHRISTINA VASILEIOU | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION

Filmed by Tokomburu

Production by Inkas Film Productions

Christina Vasileiou, dance artist (1978), Bucharest, Romania | bd | n | sl

Sound and the body, action and effect define this work by Christina Vasileiou. An eight hour experiment exploring the body’s reaction to constant, relentless sound. The artist freely submits to the biddings of the aural incitation channeled into her ears. She becomes isolated within the constant flow of music and sounds that are her only stimuli in the space, without engaging in interaction of any kind — not with objects, a set, or the public. And the body reacts in the only way it knows how: with movement, with dance. It becomes a temple in motion, filled with intensity and suspension, disjunction and pain.

Commissioned and produced by NEON + MAI, Christina Vasileiou, Bd | n | sl, on the occasion of AS ONE, Benaki Museum, Athens, 10 March – 24 April 2016, Filming Tokomburu, Production Inkas Film Productions
