"Free At Last" is inspired by the story of Zalongo. A story of women who lived in the highland of Greece and who in the face of disgrace and shame, choose death fo themselves and their children. An act of braveness and a fearless attitude are just some points which have moved Danae & Dionysios to create this work. What happens at the instant moment of crisis? Which are the very last actions before the big decision between life and death is taken?
More work by Danae & Dionysios during the Dansweek! On June 14 they will perform "ATMA", their first full-evening creation. More info & tickets here.
Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition
"Free At Last" is made possible by the Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition (RIDCC). These choreographers won the XL production award prize (100.000 euro to create a new production at Theater Rotterdam) for their piece Uncia at the first edition of RIDCC in 2018. “The jury was fascinated by the original and brave choice to stick to a very simple starting point, and work that out until it becomes an overwhelming experience to watch. The piece felt complete and was a composition.”
The aim of RIDCC is to stimulate and offer opportunities to choreographers from all over the world. The second edition of RIDCC will be hosted by Theater Rotterdam en will take place from 27-29 June 2019. More info & tickets here.
