Mystical imagery; dark atmosphere; Greek tradition deconstructed and linked with the present. An original choreography inspired by the legendary Dance of Zalongos. Two young choreographers carry the emotionally charged ‘last dance’ onto the stage, conveying the movement towards the brink of the abyss. Bodies turn into earth, nourishing in turn what once nourished them. From the ground to the sky; from the roots to the blooming flowers; from the end to the beginning; from the beginning to the end: the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth.

Following a series of notable international collaborations, including with Akram Khan’s dance company, Dionysios Alamanos and Danae Dimitriadi, recipients of the XL Production Award at the Rotterdam International Duet Choreography Competition, make their Athens Festival debut. Free at Last is a performance about tradition being passed down from generation to generation, featuring original music and choreography inspired by traditional dances, Greek and foreign alike; a performance that vividly brings to life the creatures of the natural world.
