Music and dance performance

"O topos en o adropos"

 

The monumental work of the great Cypriot painter Adamantios Diamantis (1900-1994) "The World of Cyprus" (1967-1972), charcoal and acrylic on Irish linen comprising eleven panels (Leventis Gallery), was the source of inspiration for the performance that will take place on 28/07/22 as a part of the FANEROMENI22 Arts Festival.

 

The painting captures in a grandiose pictorial composition all the elements that constituted the physiognomy of the people and landscape of his homeland. The Cypriot composer Evagoras Karageorgis approached this great work musically, having created his work “The Story Of A Picture” in 2000.

 

 

With these elements of inspiration, through the art of dance, a different piece of art inspired by the painting is created. A performance that revives, through Contemporary Dance, elements of our folk tradition, a journey of memory, celebration and nostalgia, accompanied by live music... The work "The Place and the Man" is an ode to the Cypriot culture. A journey through rhythm and dance to our roots... Three arts together, a patchwork of audiovisual creation, aiming to celebrate and to honour our culture.

 

 

'It was the best world I've ever known. Heavy, rough and confident in good and bad, it carried its age-old legacy.' Adamantios Diamantis
