Two Tales

Intriguing dance rituals and the intense and mystical atmosphere make this dance performance an overwhelming experience. Free at last is based on a well-known Greek myth about the struggle for independence. A group of women dance their last dance on the edge of a cliff as a sign of resistance. With their homeland and ancient Greek stories as sources of inspiration, the choreographer duo Danae & Dionysios create an atmospheric and penetrating dance piece about the cycle of life and traditions that are passed on from generation to generation.

-|-The Mourning
The dance piece The Mourning is a love story, farce and tragedy all rolled into one. From her Sicilian background, choreographer and theatre maker Erika Silgoner creates a lively and cinematic choreography with eight dancers. Sadness, humour, irony, passion, and hilarious moments alternate. With breathtaking partnering and virtuoso dance, Silgoner manages to keep the audience's attention from beginning to the surprising end. Erika Silgoner is founder of Eklan Art's Factory, an innovative, young Italian company that gives performances worldwide. Because of her originality, she was asked to choreograph part of the closing ceremony of the Olympic winter games in Beijing.
