20:30 ‘Through me, THEM–‘
A choreographic piece that has been created having as a point of departure the movement response of women, submitted through one-minute videos after an open call. Participants were asked to share, their unique, personal experience in regard to male dominance, loss, and isolation through bodily movement. The movement material received has been put together and has been edited towards the creation of an integrated piece, performed by the male choreographer, considering that his body is a means contributing towards the communication of female struggle in social context, at current times.

21:00 ‘into the roots…’
A time to change, a time to remove the many layers of burdens that life places upon us. First the wind, she comes and goes with a power that strips us of our dignity. Naked we float as light as a falling feather, dancing to the music of life. Our heart cannot help itself, it can only return us to the cradle of life. Only there do we find the power to be born again, beyond the web of ego. Now we have an empty space. What will we fill it with? It is a time to reveal our spirituality.

Aneesha Michael:
Aneesha Michael graduated from the professional school of dance; Rallou Manou, Athens. In 2014 she produced her first work ‘Quest’, a naked body on a white sculpture, which has been performed several times. Followed by the works ‘Vente Ambulante’, and ‘Red VelVet’. The themes of her work have to do with humans and their spirituality. Her current investigations are into how movement relates to the anatomy of the body and experimenting with objects and how they relate to her presence as a performer. The unique characteristic of Aneesha is that she performs and choreographs in a meditative way. Often, if not always, she creates her choreography whilst on stage, performing following the energy, aligning her movement with nature’s elements, fire, earth, air, water and metal.
