Once There Was A Forest (2021)

How does my body remember nature?

How deep is its imprint on my existence?

How do I surrender to a world of constant change?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plastic, charcoal, ice, stone, skull... in what ways these materials speak about our world today?

Three performers on stage, using materials, movement and sound, create the ever-changing landscape of a fragile world, while tapping into our memory of its past and our imagination of its future.

A performance by dance artist Konstantina Skalionta in collaboration with dramaturg Rodia Vomvolou, dance artist Belinda Papavasileiou, composer Dimitris Savva.
