After-performance talk with Mariela Nestora

19 December 2010
Upper Stage
After-performance talk with the choreographer of YELP Dance Company, Mariela Nestora.

Lebenswelt, a work by the YELP Dance Company and choreographed by Mariela Nestora, follows the tale of a duet in a space where living forms meld with video projections. It is the last part in the S trilogy, which was inspired by the philosophy of Edmund Husserl, the founder of phenomenology, who uses the term ‘Lebenswelt’ to define the world which we each perceive around us. In this work, then, the worlds of the two dancers coexist with a third: the world of the audience.


Chaired by Katia Savrami, Choreologist, Lecturer in the History and Theory of Dance at the University of Patras (Theatre Studies Department)
