ΣΑΚΡΑ: Performance by Alexis Vassiliou on November 18

In his latest work ΣΑΚΡΑ, Alexis Vassiliou continues the research he began in 2020 with the creation of the short film entitled ΕΓΚΑΤΑ, attempting to reconstruct a rhythmic, acoustic, and bodily ritual on the origins of language, emotions and the human experience. Having as references the most identifiable melodic and rhythmic motives of Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, the performance seeks to reconstruct through the process of abstraction and fragmentation the starting point of life – as the performer is in a constant effort to activate the basic functions of the breath, the voice and the mechanism of movement.
Alexis Vassiliou was born in Cyprus in 1978. He studied dance at Trinity-Laban
Conservatoire of Music and Dance-UK (Diploma in Dance Studies), music at University of East Anglia-UK (Β.Α in Music) and composition of music for films and theatre at University of Bristol-UK (M.A). In 2008 he received a scholarship (Dance-Web) as part of the 25th ΙmpulsTanz Vienna International Dance Festival. During 2012 and 2013 he was selected to participate (artistic residency) in two European programmes (E-motional Bodies and Cities and Act Your Age). In 2014 with his work Please Be Gentle, Alexis was selected in the final twenty artists of Aerowaves network. He directed /choreographed various works that were presented at festivals locally and abroad. In 2016 he was appointed as general and artistic director of Dance House Lemesos.
