After performance talk with José Vidal

Latin America: LOOP3

22 November 2014
Nine dancers in two square metres! An elegy on coexistence which brings the distinguished Chilean choreographer José Vidal to Athens for the first time.
The talented José Vidal, one of the Latin American choreographers whose work has earned them accolades in Europe, makes his Greek premiere with a singular performance of great visual beauty and power. Nine bodies moving in a square with sides just two metres long; a choreographic phrase which lasts two minutes or so repeated in loops which start on a different point in the square each time and gradually rotate the group through 360 degrees. The images give way one to the other like a living organism forever changing as it evolves. Vidal experiments with speed, slowing down and speeding up the action as the human mass grows more or less dense, sweats, and produces sounds which form part of the performance’s musical accompaniment.
