Angeliki Stellatou (movement) and Stavros Gasparatos (music) join forces to co-define the spirit of collaboration between dance and music: art-forms that have been flirting with one another since time began. Open to dialogue in their creative coexistence, they encouraged music and dance to influence one another and contribute to a production in equal measure.

Imbued with their concerns about the human condition, the production dwells on the pain of the human soul and Man’s endless struggle to free himself of guilt and simply exist. Their preoccupation with the “seven deadly sins” gave rise to a series of fundamental, bothersome and possibly unanswerable questions: What does ‘sin’ mean today? How do we exist in a social environment that feeds and stimulates greed and arrogance while condemning them? How can pleasure be separated from guilt? How does the body experience guilt, and what punishments does the ‘sinful’ soul impose on itself ?

The company isn’t searching for answers; rather, it wants to share with the audience a world wrought from their seductive and fascinating encounters with sin. The piece was built up gradually with an emphasis on the complementary nature of its dual cores—music and dance—and on achieving an interaction between sound and the body that would transform the latter into music. All together, the eleven dancers and five musicians performing live on stage will try to give the “margin for error”—within which daring and instinctive communication can generate sincere depositions—a chance. Familiar material like the simple, measured everyday movements was deemed essential and framed by musical phrases with a classic and electronic sound, creating a web of inter-relationships: dancers/musicians, movement/music, musicians/movement, dancers/music.
