‘Happening’ is a durational workshop/performance, taking place within the framework of the workshop series ‘Body as Site’ organised by Dance Gate Lefkosia at Dancehouse Lefkosia. It follows the format of ‘Blind Date’, a series of improvised performances, initiated by the performance artists Jacqueline van de Geere and Demetra Kallitsi, in 2016, Leipzig, Germany.

The workshop, which will be led by Demetra Kallitsi and Arianna Economou, invites the participation of up to 8 people, who will be paired in duets (during the workshop) in order to create improvised performances over the course of 2 hours.

The participants are asked to bring 10 everyday objects, which they will exchange with their ‘performance partner’ and use as the core of their performances.

The performance will be open to the public, on a walk-in basis; witnesses, visitors, onlookers are welcome to actively participate in the performances by joining the participants as they surprised themselves and each other, handing out objects, performing solo or duo or not performing at all.

The ultimate goal of the workshop/performance is creative experimentation (for both the artist and the viewer) with the aim of broadening the limits of our imagination, drawing inspiration from working in pairs and transforming our thoughts into creative actions.
