It explores the human race behavior towards its environment presenting shape-shifting creatures that can morph into humans or animals. In a dreamlike atmosphere supported by Constantine Skourlis’ haunting score, Atma tells us also about their fight for survival, their vulnerabilities and their desire to dominate.
“The sound of the bell leads you to the top of the mountain, where you can see the elephants in the sky playing with each other.
As they deep their trunks into the river, the sky fills with water.
Falling from a distance it turned into snow, changing the colour of the sky from blue to grey.
Stealth, quiet they fall on to the earth chasing the blue sheep vertically down the mountain.”
This production is based on the ten-minutes duet “Uncia” and which has been touring in Greece and internationally. In June 2018, it was awarded at the Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition and as a result, Danae & Dionysios will direct and choreograph a new production for the Productiehuis Theater Rotterdam which will be premiered in June 2019.
Danae Dimitriadi and Dionysios Alamanos are two emerging Greek artists highly concerned by the future of the Earth. Their work brings together contemporary dance, Greek inspirational aesthetics and powerful messages about the necessity of humanity to feel more concerned and act for the future. Led by strong convictions and willing to share their messages through their creations by rising awareness to the widest audience, Danae and Dionysios are expected to become in the years to come, ones of the outstanding Greek artists of their generation.
