The Greek choreographer-revelation and his latest work are here again. Dancing like a glacier.

“A name circulates, praised for its boldness and minimalist but stunning virtuosity, for its performers. A revelation. He is Greek,” noted the Belgian press last year. Similar praise followed in every European city where “Larsen C” was presented. Shortly before travelling abroad again, Christos Papadopoulos’ latest work, an international co-production of Onassis Stegi, is making a stopover for a second season in Athens, where the rehearsals and the beginning of its development occurred.
Larsen C: a work of art in movement inspired by the slowness of melting glaciers in order to speak of the fierceness of life.
 
“Glacier” or “ice shelf.” This is the scientific name of the huge, 10,000-year-old, immobile body of Larsen C water in Antarctica. Larsen C, twice the size of Wales, moves so slowly that it cannot be detected by the human senses. It is as if the pulse of its movement is absorbed by space and time.

In Christos Papadopoulos’ homonymous choreography, human bodies resonate to the same perpetual rhythm, in a dreamlike sequence where they progressively appear as eerie as the polar landscape. Christos Papadopoulos becomes again an observer of the movement of the minimum which, in its interiority and repetition, produces life. “Larsen C” is a party in homage to the silent transition of bodies. It is “a metaphor”, comments the choreographer himself, “of life that, invincible, goes on.”
