A contemporary performance by INVERTED
Video screening and presentation of the creative process on Wednesday, 29th of March 2017, 19:30 at Dance House Lefkosia. Free Entrance
…We do not know where we come from nor where we are going…a few glimpses in-between an endless hum and noise in order to prove who we are. One thing is certain: birth, reproduction and death, and the hum that covers fear, anxiety, emotion…glimpses…
We invite you to a presentation by the artists of the performance GLIMPSES, which was shown at Dance House Lefkosia. The presentation includes a video projection from rehearsals and performance, references to the philosophical and theoretical background, the creative process of the choreographic research, the methodology, and finally a discussion with the audience.
The concept is inspired by a story of Hinduism about the Golden God, the Immortal Swan, who leaves the small nest of the body, tastes life, its pleasures and fears, without being attached to them, and has the ability to return anytime to the state of awakeness. There is no separation of matter and spiritual awakening for the Immortal Swan, therefore it is considered to be the symbol of liberation from the veils of illusion of material life. On the contrary, we humans live trapped in oblivion, in a state similar to somnambulism, like the dead, not really awake…
The choreography has references to the work of the Greek philosopher Dimitris Liantinis and the French essayist Jean-Claude Barreau, regarding the authenticity of life, oblivion, and the awareness that humans are not immortal, which should be leading to a more conscious life and to the escape from oblivion.
