Phenomena

Georgia Vardarou

2013

Phenomena are humanly provoked events, moments of tiny contents that surface, outbursts of statements, emptiness, reactions and enhancements of a narrative that is turbulently being shaped.

In Phenomena the Greek choreographer Georgia Vardarou focuses on the personal, individual movement. Three dancers make their own movement language and their own trail. The choreography seems to emerge sponta- neously. Conflict and harmony determine the storyline. The only boundaries are the theatrical space and the need to give meaning to the absurdity of movements.

Phenomena, the first group choreography created by Vardarou, is inspired by Hardcore Research on Dance (2012), a solo created around the origins of her personal way of movement.
