Ioannis Mandafounis & Aoife McAtamney
One One One

Acropolis Museum - Forecourt
Get ready for a totally unique experience: a dance just for you!
What can two chairs and two lines on the ground signify? In One One One, the two chairs are provided for two viewers who are invited to experience something unique. At the other end of each line, there’s a performer ready to dance for them while the rest of the audience participates by choosing the song they like best. The two performers reflect the reactions to their dance like a mirror, and in doing so treat the audience to a new dance experience which calls roles and boundaries into question and which, though public, remains utterly private.
Having worked with the greatest choreographers of our time -William Forsythe, for one- Ioannis Mantafounis has never ceased to surprise us with his rare talents as a performer, but also with his insatiable appetite for choreographic experimentation. On this occasion, he has joined forces with the equally special Aoife McAtamney for his investigations. Bringing subversive humour and endlessly shape-shifting movement to the performance, the two dancers weave an intricate fan of emotions and images and create magical moments of interaction with the audience.
