3rd Young Choreographers Festival

23-24 MAR 2016
This is the third year that young choreographers have their own festival at the Onassis Cultural Centre: three different choreographers, three works that map contemporary dance in Greece and Cyprus.
In the spirit of the last two years, Greeks of the diaspora, working in Europe, continue to have a strong presence. Local talent also give their mark, shaping the new tendencies of contemporary Greek dance. For the first time this year, OCC turns to Cyprus, hoping to start a dialogue that supports open borders in art.

The three works of this year’s festival have a different style and orientation, covering a wide range of themes. Evangelia Kolyra’s interdisciplinary gaze focuses on breathing in order to explore not just a technical understanding of the body, but also the overtones that result from dealing with such an essential bodily function. Informed by philosophy and myth, Ioanna Angelopoulou experiments with the notions of space, bodily contact, resistance, and resignation through the looking glass of Hesiod’s Theogony. Finally, Harry Koushos comes together with a great musician of his generation, Dimitrios Skyllas, in a bold production at the Main Stage of the OCC. Together they redefine the notion of lament, of the eternal wandering, and of the suffering body.

For a third year then, this two-day Festival presents new productions, exemplary of today, which have been supported by known dance centres in Greece and abroad. Tuning in to the times, the Festival brings to the fore the importance of art, wishing to reinforce a dialogue with the spectator.
