Sketching a Dance: The World of Cyprus with Women

Cyprus : Sketching a Dance: The World of Cyprus with Women

The choreographic research draws inspiration from the sketch "The World of Women" by Adamantios Diamantis (1900 - 1994) which the painter never realized into the desired monumental work in oils, as he had done successfully with his "THE WORLD OF CYPRUS" depicting predominantly the men of the island.

This modest but intriguing sketch has inspired and been read as hieroglyphic and symbolic images by the dancers, prompting their imagination to explore the complex connection between Body with Memory, Body with Earth and Place with Time.

The choreographic process wishes to touch the WORLD OF CYPRUS WITH WOMEN by weaving both dancers and singers as performers, who are ritualizing a celebration and connecting a unique web of the women of the island, across time immemorial.

“Sketching a Dance" this dance is a collaboration between Echo Arts / Arianna Economou, Amalgamation Choir & Friends of Vasiliki Anastasiou, and composer Andreas Papapetrou

The performance is dedicated to the Diamantis Families
