The performance, named “Drops of Breath”, is an initiative of choreographers Sophie Bulbulyan (DK-BEL / France) and Apostolia Papadamaki (Quasi Stellar / Greece) in collaboration with Lia Haraki (Pelma / Cyprus) and a team from 11 collaborating countries*.
In an underwater theatre, fourteen professional & amateur performers (three disabled & five children) from France, Greece and Cyprus will interpret an underwater choreography at Cape Sounio beach, under the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon at the edge of Attica land looking over the Aegean Sea.
The innovative project (The Underwater Heart of the Mediterranean) with an artistic, educational, social and human dimension was selected by the EU’s Creative Europe, Horizon 2020 Program, General Direction of Education and Culture.
Reflecting on our common roots and paths, the project goes far beyond the search on the uniqueness of our cultures through exploring similarities.
The underwater sound design by Escoitar (by Enrique Tòmas) will offer an immerse sound experience to the audience while the underwater scenography and costumes by George Georgiou will create a unique visual scenery.
Three underwater cameras will provide simultaneous screening under the direction of Stelios Apostolopoulos.
Ticket booking will be available soon through www.dropsofbreath.com
