DANCE | GREECE
“Seven exceptional dancers from different generations of the Greek dance scene.” —The Reader
One of the most interesting dance makers from Greece is Tzeni Argyrou. She is supported by Onassis Stegi, the cultural center with which ITA often collaborates. In ANΩNYMO, Argyriou connects traditional Greek dance with a contemporary phenomenon: social media.
A journey back to a time when art was not something created by particular, named individuals, but a practice that brought people – and kept communities – together. ANΩNYMO observes our lives through collective body memory, the experience of passing traditional dances on, and their complete transformation into a contemporary movement idiom.
