A playful and physical research. Like a journey from birth, discovering games, directions and relationships.Moments of meeting followed by those of parting. Almost animal like.A view from one point on many different constellations and situations.

Ptosis (2013) is the second of minimalist, repetitive choreographies made by PavlosKountouriotis.The principle behind the making of Ptosis was- ‘Falling, never boring’.The piece is made up of 3 sets of dancers, 4 acts, 9 scenes, 8 scores and 5 movements.The score for the piece was made using coloured post-its hanged on the wall.In addition to the formal means of the structure, the performance is also mediated by aseries of principles for performance, which include: ‘it’s just a silly dance’, ‘insist, persist,assist’, ‘how we feel is how we behave’, ‘offer the gift of courage’, ‘there are no mistakes’.

Eudoxxia is inspired by the wonderful literal work of Italo Calvinos „ Invisible Cities“

A piece about seeing and being seen.
One single moment. To be lost in the deepness of a gaze. To be swallowed by your observer. A horror. Are our eyes really the mirror of our soul? Do they tell us the truth and can we find honesty and sincerity?
The ideal neutral eye contact in middle Europe is an average of 1/6 of a second. Longer as 3 seconds, and stress is felt. The “look” of a person can cause pain.

A network without personal relationships, without responsibilities. Digital communication increases whilst face to face meeting and sharing becomes less and less. How do these changes have an effect on our physical and psychological wellbeing?
