Tzeni Argyriou | ANONYMO


When technology defines our life and our relationships, isn’t it time to start from the beginning? Shouldn’t we walk to the river source? A journey to the source of dance – a journey to what is "ANONYMO"...

24 May, 2018 to 27 May, 2018

ANONYMOUS looks back to a time when art wasn't something created by particular, named individuals, but a practice which brought people—and kept communities—together. It immerses itself in these societies' dances and modes of expression, which are rooted in human contact, holding, group cohesion and shared joy. It observes our lives through collective body memory, the experience of passing traditional dances on and their complete transformation into a contemporary movement idiom. It is the representation of a dance which, though it has creators, insists on defining itself as "anonymous" as it seeks its roots in rites of initiation and participation.

The work is underpinned by research which Tzeni Argyriou conducted during her residency at the OCC in 2016–17; the material has already been presented at international events.
