‘Drops of Peace’ Interactive Dance-visual Performance Coming Soon to the Vorres Museum
The underwater dance experience rises and touches the ground of the gardens of the Vorres Museum
“Drops of Breath”, the impressive underwater dance-visual show that took place in September in the Cape Sounio sea, will continue its performance out of the water and into the gardens of the Vorres Museum in Peania, East Attica, with “Drops of Peace”.
“Drops of Breath”… Mission accomplished!
Following two years of intensive research and rehearsing, “Drops of Breath”, the world’s first underwater dance – visual performance, opened in Greece at Cape Sounio beach on September 25.
The event, which ran until September 27, included three dance performances at 6 metres under the water in the Cape Sounio sea, beneath the ancient Temple of Poseidon, in an underwater circular scene designed by George Georgiou, embraced by the original music of composer Trifon Koutsourelis. The performance was experienced both by an underwater and a shore audience.
The next step… “Drops of Peace”
From October 25 to October 27 the Vorres Museum will host “Drops of Peace”, a dance-visual-interactive-site-specific performance.
Choreographers Sophie Bulbulyan, Lia Haraki and Apostolia Papadamaki, in collaboration with artists from three countries, will offer a performance that is the “on-earth continuation” of the underwater experience of “Drops of Breath”. Children, adults and persons with disabilities are invited to observe the unique concept as it unravels in the gardens of the Vorres Museum.
“Drops of Peace is a walk in nature… An experience that will bring the spectators closer to their own nature”, the organizers explain.
“Drops of Peace” will be performed by the same team of dancers of “Drops of Breath” (three French dancers, three Greek dancers, one Cypriot dancer and a child) who will “link the liquid with the solid” and become “the underwater life that walks on soil”. Three of the dancers are artists with disabilities.
“Overall, Drops of Peace is a walk in a garden during which the audience will embark on their own journey while watching the dancers reminisce their underwater experience.”
Throughout the performance, video material of the “Drops of Breath” underwater performance will be projected on the trees, the surface of the buildings complex and the dancers.
Tickets for the performance are available at www.dropsofbreath.com.
From Athens, the dancers of “Drops of Peace” will travel to Cyprus and perform at the Limassol Municipal Gardens on October 31 and November 1. On November 2, the underwater show of “Drops of Breath” will be screened at the Old Vinegar Factory in Limassol, Cyprus, at 8:30 pm. Entrance will be free.
“Drops of Peace” is part of “The Underwater Heart of the Mediterranean”, a European Union cultural project chosen from the Creative Europe, Horizon 2020 program for the January 2015-February 2016 period.
