2nd Young Choreographers Festival

Upper Stage
The OCC is staging its New Choreographers Festival for the second consecutive year. Under the artistic direction of Katia Arfara, the event will showcase the work of four up-and-coming choreographers whose work stands out for its artistry, aesthetic and technique.
The four artists, all of whom bring a great deal of knowledge and high-profile domestic and professional experience to the event, experiment with a range of disparate methods and mixed techniques in their ongoing quest to renew the choreographic spectacle and their own movement idioms. Focusing on the artist’s responsibilities and taking a critical look at the role of the audience, they test the boundaries of dance, expanding and shifting them as a result.
Their committed artistic research comes hand in hand with an equally dynamic social problematic. Adopting a range of approaches encompassing the abstract, the symbolic and the militant, they open up social structures and the concept of the individual to discussion.
Artemis Lampiri and Lia Tsolaki, who are based in Greece, and Kiriakos Hadjioannou and Georgia Vardarou, who work out of Switzerland and Belgium respectively, are highly representative of the new tendencies on the Greek dance scene, and never cease engaging with the most current choreographic idioms as they appear internationally.
