Meeting in Athens 6 · Responses

In occasion of the EDN meeting in Athens that took place in November 2015, the local dancehouse, The Isadora & Raymond Duncan Dance Research Center, organized a series of events under the title Map of contemporary Dance in Greece.

One of them was the screening of the film Responses. It presents choreographers whose work is in discourse with the socio-political condition of the last years. How this situation has affected their thinking and work, their thematic content and their collaborations? Have they delved into areas that they wouldn’t have visited otherwise?

Artists presented: Tzeni Argyriou, Ermira Goro, Maria Gorgia, Zoi Dimitriou, Lenio Kaklea, Giota Kallimani, Iris Karayan, Euripides Laskaridis, Medie Mega, Mariela Nestora, Dimitris Papaioannou, Ioanna Portolou, Kostas Tsioukas.

The film was also part of the second EDN event focused on the topic of relevance, the Atelier organized by Dansmakers Amsterdam in March 2016. Responses is more than a presentation of dance projects, but a best practice of how to present the dance landscape in a fresh way.
