EVENTS / THIS IS A SPACE: prova generale
this is a space experiment open studio at Plyfa, our temporary home. A group improvisation
where our rehearsal is a performance and our performance, a rehearsal
STELLA this is a space of longing, this is a space of belonging
HARIS one space, eleven different characters, unlimited possible outcomes
XENIA S. time travels in circles
PAVLOS this is a space of collateral beauty. a space where shadows play around with their heroes. this space is a fountain of becoming
KONSTANTINOS this is a new space. new faces, new collisions, familiar figures, carrying memories, (re)creating moments and giving shape to the unknown. this is our playground
DANAE this is a space of joy. in this space we expose and evolve. this is a space of possibilities°juggling decisions. this space is our home.
KLAUS this is a space where nothing is the same, nothing happens twice, and if it does it will not be the same because you will be someone else.
ANTONIA this is an ephemeral space and always remains ephemeral
XENIA T. my beloved, do you remember the staircase? we will ascend it once more
DIMITRIS I was the lonely one that had the “right”, now the “others” ripped off that “right”. Is this absence or trans?
AIDI this space is everything. upside down
this is a space experiment
This is a continuous character based experiment. Thus, the resulting piece will always remain under construction and its transformation will unfold and be presented to the audience in phases. In each phase, the ongoing creative process expresses its findings by constantly re-approaching them as raw materials and as an inexhaustible source of creation. The visual and physical languages born and elaborated in the experiment constitute the core findings of our research. The choice of medium and site for the presentation of each phase is made in an open dialogue with the creative needs of our current process. In this experiment, we envision a never-ending staircase with its steps exposed. This is a space: prova generale is an open studio/rehearsal at Plyfa, our temporary home for our current phase, where we playfully challenge the following concept: our rehearsal is a performance, our performance is a rehearsal.
