Christos Papadopoulos & Dance On Ensemble
A body, outwardly at rest and inwardly vibrating. What processes does the energy go through until it breaks through? How does it change as the body matures?
In his new production "MELLOWING", the Greek choreographer Christos Papadopoulos works for the first time with the dancers of the Dance On Ensemble, a dance company for professional dancers over 40, and incorporates their body knowledge and experience into the creation.
Together they dedicate themselves to the contradictory states of concentration and fullness, tenderness and unconditionality, pulsating power, speed and calm.
"[...] part of Greece's younger generation of remarkable talents in the theatre and dance scene [and] hailed as an astonishing new voice in contemporary choreography [...]" (Greek news agenda)
Christos Papadopoulos' work is often described as minimalist and precise. His attention is focused on the minimal shifts in perception, the permanent, often unnoticed and yet powerful movements in nature, in everyday life, within physical phenomena and political contexts.
A production by DANCE ON / Bureau Ritter.
In co-production with ONASSIS STEGI, Athens, and Centre chorégraphique national de Rillieux-la-Pape / Direction Yuval PICK, as part of the accueil-studio programme.
Supported by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
DANCE ON is an initiative of Bureau Ritter gUG, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe and co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union within the framework of DANCE ON, PASS ON, DREAM ON.
