Contemporary Dance Performance
Vicky Vasilopoulou presents the new contemporary dance performance titled “Handmade” at the DanceVacuum Center of Performing Arts on Saturday 10th March and every Saturday and Sunday until March 25th.
The choreographer draws inspiration from the conceptual context of the handcrafted creation that contradicts with and works as an antidote to the culture of consumerism that often extends to human relationships.
Both professional and amateur dancers take part in the performance as well as the actor Maria Skoula. The African dancer and percussionist Dauda Conteh and the activist Click Nwgere participate in the video of the show.
“Handmade is a performance for how human beings can communicate with other people through their imagination and authenticity, interact with them and ultimately produce art and by extension culture. The gathering and exchange of ideas, the influence of the African culture, for example, on the Western consumerism model can give an idea of how cultures can interact through openings that only art and the process of “handmade” can give. Through a parade of ideas and ideograms the choreography wants to approach the authenticity that stems from the handmade creation that brings us back to traditional values, strengthens the sense of “belonging” and meeting with the “other” self. Through a process of “knitting” we create tissues that like a modern “Ariadne’s thread” can lead us in new forms of expression and communication”.
