Residency with Kinesis Dance somatheatro: An ODDessay #114 explores spatial confinement, restriction and limitations with raw emotional intensity. This interdisciplinary journey has evolved from a site specific collaboration performed in 2011, to an innovative theatre environment that will integrate the audience into architectural set elements. The spectator’s relationship to space is explored through manipulation of music, lights, video projection and set. An ODDessay #114 blurs the line between performer and observer through creative interaction and unconventional staging, to create a new performance experience.
Kinesis Dance somatheatro is based in Vancouver, Canada. The company’s mandate is to contribute to the development of the art of modern dance through workshops and performances both in Canada and abroad. The company seeks to explore the human condition through contemporary dance and physical theatre. Under the artistic direction of Greek-Canadian Paraskevas Terezakis, the company creates highly visual and emotional works which combine live performance with multimedia, text, design, and original musical composition. Terezakis’ choreography can be described as physical poetic theatre. The movements explore the contrast between the excitement of energy and the simple beauty of stillness. Often inspired by classical Greek theatre, Terezakis explores the visceral and emotional landscape of the human condition.
