22nd Contemporary Dance Festival - Cyprus

Cyprus : 22nd Contemporary Dance Festival - Cyprus

Alone and with a sense of defeat and loss of belief, six men are seeking for their new faith. In a timeless and lonely landscape, in a place where memory becomes a nightmare and the present a deep painful wound, they struggle violently, but at the same time quietly, to rediscover their body, their truth... the light.

The bodies fall, hug, tremble, stay still, breathe, shake, explode, sway, fight, dance, crave, hope, promise and sacrifice. Moments and encounters that come and go and others that are lost forever into the dark, leaving them alone again, confronted with their passions, their desires and their fears. Always confronted with one single enemy, themselves.

A dark, pagan and poetic journey for the search of identity, the need for tenderness, the sense of belonging somewhere, belonging to someone, co-existing. A melancholic journey, hidden behind shadows and darkness but filled with desires, cravings, rage, fragments of memory and sudden shadows of light. A look into the hidden desires and untold stories of the tender male soul.

DESIRES
Like beautiful bodies of the dead, who had not grown old
and they shut them with tears, in a magnificent mausoleum,
with roses at the head and jasmine at the feet --
that is how desires look that have passed
without fulfillment; without one of them having achieved
a night of sensual delight, or a moonlit morn.
C. P. Cavafy
