Venue Details

Ag I Rentis - Kaminia

Peiraios 260

Peiraios 260 kai Polykratoys

Due to the ongoing pandemic crisis, all performance dates are subject to change.

A huge, cage-like, metal scaffolding, which at once protects and restricts dancers, will be set up at the Peiraios 260 Platea as as stage for the avant-garde spectacle of the French dance company Dyptik. This electrifying performance draws on hip hop and break dance as a way of expressing rebelliousness, rage and pain, escape and the freedom/restraint binary. Six French dancers with a background in street dance will embark on a journey with aspects of improvisation to the sounds of Arabic museum infused with modern beats. Audiences will also be given the opportunity to participate. Social issues such as ethnic origin, the state of being a refugee and immigration to the Western world will take centre stage.

Compagnie Dyptik believes that minds and emotions can be set free through the body. Street dance becomes theatre dance, while individual artistry turns into collective expression.
