Anastasia Valsamaki


Newcomer Anastasia Valsamaki will stage a group performance for nine dancers, exploring the tension between individuality and collaboration, in search of a harmonic co-existence between the two. The dramaturgy is structured around the dancers’ physical contact and the trajectory of their bodies. In its dizzying, accelerating, almost palindromic sense of rhythm, the performance invites audiences to immerse themselves into and reflect upon the nature of collaboration. The materiality of the senses, the different ways in which bodies can “breathe”, and the fragility of being are highlighted through images, gazes, and physical contact. Sync is an invitation from Me to Us. The performance has been selected by the Aerowaves dance network and was presented at the Spring Forward Festival 2017.

Sync was first presented in June 2016 at BIOS with the support of Take Over Greece.
