Kinesis Dance somatheatro marks its 30th anniversary with a new creation by Artistic Director Paras Terezakis which continues on the conceptual path of 2015’s U>W. The work is inspired by the search for utopia, how the insatiable desire to reach this paradise brings out both the best and the worst in us, and the penumbra - the grey area between light and darkness - that clouds our quest for enlightenment. Integrating movement, theatre, music, video and lighting, Terezakis deploys a crack ensemble of fearless dancers in a thrilling visual landscape. His dense, meaty choreography and compelling theatrical imagination propel a visceral adventure into a world of contrasts and contradictions.
