‘Requiem, a choreographed portrait’ Alexis Tsiamoglou / RoughCut
DANCE @ MEGARON UNDERGROUND
Requiem is a choreographed portrait of the dancer, functioning as her personal obituary. The wooden floor is the canvas upon which the basic material, i.e. the body and the experiences of the dancer, is applied.
In contrast to painting, the choreographed portrait is perceived as a process, as the choreographic point of view captures gestures, moods, and intentions.
The acoustic background of the performance varies between song, narrative and documentary.
