Two exciting productions are coming up in Limassol this month. Taking the stage first is a music-inspired performance called Varka sto Gialo, journeying through the lesser-known life moments of a great Greek composer.
January 26’s performance is based on the book of the same title, written by Maro Theodoraki, the niece of Mikis Theodorakis, and centres around the unknown childhood of the Greek composer, presenting moments, images and milestones in the life of the world-renowned musician, as well as of modern Greek history. Directed by Adonis Florides, the show includes the participation of the Epilogi Choir conducted by Michalis Gregoriou to bring Theodorakis’ legacy back to life.
Then, on January 28 and 29 something more thought-provoking and flashier is coming to Rialto Theatre as well-known choreographer Elena Antoniou continues to create and present her new work titled Landscape.
In this solo performance, Antoniou unapologetically presents herself in order to highlight the personal experience as a collective landscape. She overexposes the female body with pleasure and extends the limit of spectacle by skillfully and intentionally inviting the gaze of the spectators. In Landscape, Antoniou creates the space and the environment for the political body to exist as deeply traumatised, yet superficially sexual. Three shows will be on next weekend, one on Friday and a double performance on Saturday.
