mneme ‐ [action] 21
The new [action] of Prosxima Dance Company, choreographed by Maria Koliopoulou, provokes the audience to bring back into memory that subconscious state where one's only duty is to pursue one's dreams, thus delivering the promise of hope.
Exploring the notion of memory, Maria Koliopoulou suggests a regressive journey into physical memory, with the goal of escaping from the present and disengaging from the prospect of the future.
The performance aims to defer the audience, by means of sound, imagery and symbol to his or her own recollections and memories.
