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

Five dancers create a street performance, around dusk, in the neighbourhoods of Athens. A typ of dance that is originated in the streets, worked upon on the dance studio and is then deconstructed, only to return to the streets where it was originally born.

From Monastiraki square to Omonia square to the industrial complex of Peiraios 260 and the city suburbs, Athens uses the language of hip hop and breakdance to engage in dialogue wihth other metropolitan centres around the world. Andi Xhuma creates a dance performance amidst scaffolding, ladders, ceiling brushes and building material. Using a microphone and Rebetiko-inspired music, Xhuma draws on hip hop and breakdance to create a choreography focusing on the similarities between American street culture and Greek folk tradition. The initial concept evolves into a more contemporary choreography, with a re-imagined structure, musical and movement quality, and becomes a complete performance with its own themes and dramaturgy. A performance that promotes the Festival’s opening to hip hop culture and to a more youthful audience.

As part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2020. Five dancers create a street performance, around dusk, in the neighbourhoods of Athens.
