InterSpace - Trails of Memories

Cyprus : InterSpace - Trails of Memories

Solo interactive performance by Arianna Economou

“Crevices of the Mind: Time Lost & Time Found”
On the 21st of February Arianna is presenting her solo interactive performance “Trails of Memories: Crevices of the Mind/ Time Lost & Time found” which took place within the exhibition of Trails of Memories in November 2017 at the Pafos Municipal Art Gallery ( 27 October – 11 November).

The whole project took place within the Terpsichore Programme for dance research and development within the Pafos 2017 events ( 21 October – 11 November 2017) and apart from an exhibition it also included group site specific performances (21 - 27 October) in the epicentre of old Paphos- Ktima (Mousallas area) with performers: Haris Koushos, Michael Kriembardis, Natalie Tsingis, Mikaella Michael, Hasine Felek.

For InterSpace, Arianna will present videos of the site specific performances, talk about her research so far and present live the first part of her solo interactive performance ‘Archaic Ritual- Myth’.

Trails of Memories: Crevices of the mind: Time Lost & Time Found consists of solo dances on the weaving and threading of fragmented stories. This research project delves into the archaeology of human emotions and the complex textures of memory.

Pafos-Ktima is a town built on layered history, filled with legends and myths particularly involving Aphrodite and her son Eros. It brings the choreographer’s research into the realm of Orphism and cosmology. The city and its environs reflect a sense of love and life on the one hand, sleep and death on the other.

A series of stepping lines, curves, swirls and swishes breathes a journey through dance. Fragmentary narratives with references to sounds and music recreate intimate moments of everyday life. Archival photographs enable us to reconstruct a society where novel ideas and sensibilities are brought over by Smyrna refugees. Similarly, urban conventions are introduced from the Hellenised city of Alexandria, which had close links to Pafos. Furthermore, students ventured to Athens and Beirut for education, and further afield to Paris and London generated the shaping of an interesting society at the turn of the 20th century in the otherwise remote, western district of Cyprus.
