An original choreography inspired by the legendary Dance of Zalongo. Danae & Dionysios from Greece carry the emotionally charged ‘last dance’ onto the stage, conveying the movement towards the brink of the abyss. Bodies turn into earth, nourishing in turn what once nourished them. From the ground to the sky; from the roots to the blooming flowers; from the end to the beginning; from the beginning to the end: the endless cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Mystical imagery; dark atmosphere; Greek tradition deconstructed and linked with the present.
