Eurydice -Digital Performance , May 2020
The live art performance "Eurydice" is inspired by the myth "Orpheus and Eurydice". It deals with the issue of loss, but also trust in the transcendental or spectral.
This is a 15-minute performance between dancer / choreographer Eirini Alexiou and a spectator. A story of loss that the viewer will accept to tell becomes a choreography right in front of his eyes, but looking through a mirror. The viewer cannot immediately see the performer's face, but receives the gifts of "Eurydice", who politely asks him "can I dance your story?"
"Eurydice" was created in a Katerina Kokkinos-Kennedy workshop in Linz and re-played at a hotel in Tours, both as part of the Hotel Obscura program. Since then she has played in Napoli (Altofest 2015) and in Athens as part of the Dourgouti Island Hotel and later in Exarchia, the neighborhood of Napoleon Lapathiotis with whom we associated her, as part of the 2018 World Book Capital. She won the first prize at Altofest 2015.
