Title of the project: “Discovering our Under/Pants”
Cyprus

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT

Discovering our Under/pants

“Discovering our Under/pants” is actress and performer’s Nayias T. Karacosta project in relation with her residency programme “Moving the new” at Dance house Limassol.
The project was created out of the need to talk about the female body, our self-disposition and pleasures through techniques derived from documentary theater.
This research started from a series of recorded interviews of women who spoke about their experiences regarding (or lack of) self-pleasuring.
Their stories were then morphed into a script and the script into a performance (“Under/pants” part 1).
As the research went along, it branched out into workshops, where through the use of theater games we talk about our bodies and our experiences- memories regarding them.
At the same time the second part of this research is how the narration of the interviewers/participants true body affects her own body as a performer and how this new body can transform into a new artistic expression.
The project aims at the collection of research data for further expanding on the ongoing script to become “Under/pants” part 2.

Title of the project: “Eyelands”
Italy

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT

Eyelands is choreographer Riccardo Buscarini’s travelling project dedicated to the islands and their culture. The play between “i” and “eye” in the title is intended to suggest a research on identity through a specific observation, such as an in-depth, scientific study.
Eyelands aims to speak of the historical and social value of belonging and the relevance of a profound gaze on the world as an instrument to get to know ourselves as individuals and communities. It is a project that celebrates the potential of culture and movement, understood both as a functional action and an artistic expression, to create bridges between people, places and cultures that are far away -in space and time.
After La Gomera (Canary Islands), Malta and Cyprus, the next chapter of the project will be held in Syros.
The project takes the form of a series of periods of residency of two or more weeks on an island. Riccardo Buscarini chooses a specific characteristic of the island which becomes the topic of the research. A series of interviews, meetings, targeted visits and a movement workshop with the participation of a group of local people focusses on this particular aspect – of the orography, of the language, of the handicraft, of the folklore, etc. The purpose of the period of residence is the creation and presentation of a public performance speaking of the island and its culture through its inhabitants’ bodies.

OPEN CALL FOR “EYELANDS”

Riccardo is looking for a group of adult people (possibly about 8-10 people) who are willing to take part in this creative process. We will be talking, moving, telling stories and sharing our perspectives on identity, traditions and what makes us who we are.
No previous experience in dance or movement is necessary.

Dates: 4 hours per day during the period 7-9 July and open performance on the 10th of July.
The performance will be included in the 8th International Dance & Dancetheatre Festival “Akropoditi DanceFest” 2021 events, in Hermoupolis, Syros.
