Interspace - Unlimited Grief - Elly Constantinou

Cyprus : Interspace - Unlimited Grief - Elly Constantinou

The choreography was initialized by a personal traumatic event and the performance was built on the emotions felt at that very moment.
The research completed so far, is based on how various cultures worldwide grieve, as regards to death rituals. After having researched this, I embodied some of their customs in grieving, which had the greatest impact on me.

The most outstanding custom which I found suitable for my project is body art. This has been used over thousands of years in many societies. Both the dead and those who mourn them are covered with paint for conceptual decoration or protection. The reason I chose body art, is because it has the greatest potential to transform the performer into something else.

By combining body movement and body painting I created a ritual dance. The technique that we are using is ‘airbrushing, as it alters the body in a more natural and realistic way.
The choreography will be performed at the Dancehouse Lefkosia in the frame of INTERSPACE, on 28th May 2017 at 20:00 – free entrance.
After the performance there will be some drinks for those who would like to stay and participate in a small discussion about their views, ideas for the project, as well as giving feedback to the Choreographer.
