Sites Embodied Pedieos Project

Cyprus : Sites Embodied Pedieos Project

Dance Gate Lefkosia Cyprus invites you to the event 'SITES EMBODIED PEDIEOS PROJECT' on Sunday, April 1st, 2018, at Dancehouse Lefkosia from 5.00pm.

Our event marks the culmination of the workshop with the presentation of each workshop participant's work created as part of this project. The works were developed over a two month period of sessions directed by Arianna Economou, exploring the Dance House Building as a site for artistic and performative exploration.

Throughout the 2-month period from February till March, workshop participants explored Somatic Movement methodologies to understand the deeper connections between Body and Earth. The work included Somatic Movement Awareness, Embodied Anatomy, Body Maps and Methodologies towards Autobiographical Site-Specific Performance.

Workshop participants have used as Site the building of the Dancehouse Lefkosia and its surrounding area. Each participant through their work has referenced the many layers of the site (political, historical, cultural and geographical) initially built by the British as the old Municipal Market of Ayios Andreas, situated on the banks of the Pedieos River. Which now acts as a dividing line in the area of Ayios Andreas.

Performances will begin at 5pm and run until 7pm followed by reception and discussion with the workshop participants.

Entrance is free.
