Minimalist and rigorous, hypnotic and subversive, visionary yet deeply anchored to the details of nature and reality: these are just some possible definitions for the creations of Christos Papadopoulos. The Greek choreographer continues his journey at the Romaeuropa Festival – which has seen him participate since its inception – by presenting his first creation for Dance On Ensemble, a famous formation made up of professional dancers over the age of 40. Incorporating their knowledge and corporal experience into his choreographic writing , Papadopoulos returns to challenge the limits of our perception and to transform the movement of many into that of a single body, outwardly immobile, yet inwardly vibrant. What processes does this energy undergo before emerging forth? And how does it change as the body changes? The movements are grafted to the soundscape of Coti K, while concentration and richness, tenderness and pulsating power, speed and stillness alternate on the stage.
