Free At Last draws inspiration from Souliotes, an ancient Northern tribe of Greece and the story of Zalongo, as well as from the book The Saviors of God by the Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis. With these elements Danae and Dionysios capture the flow of tradition from one generation to the other. End to beginning, beginning to end, a constant recycling of life, death and rebirth.
More work by Danae & Dionysios during the Dansweek! On June 14 they will perform ATMA, with the RIDCC winning duet Uncia. 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.
