THANASSIS AKOKKALIDIS | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION

Filmed by Tokomburu

Production by Inkas Film Productions

Thanassis Akokkalidis, actor and dance artist (1975), Athens, Greece | Don’t Look Down

Thought and the imagination are affected every day by acquired fears that distort our perspectives on life. Thanassis Akokkalidis faces his fears and sets them apart from his phobias, adopting a different reality for his mind. Sat on the highest point of the building opposite the Benaki Museum, he is brought face to face with his biggest fear. While his fear of heights may seize control of his mind and body, it also opens up a new, more lucid outlook over the city.

Commissioned and produced by NEON + MAI, Thanassis Akokkalidis, Don’t Look Down, and the Pain Passes, on the occasion of AS ONE, Benaki Museum, Athens, 10 March – 24 April 2016, Filming Tokomburu, Production Inkas Film Productions
