DANCE FESTIVAL MOTUM
X-IT DANCETHEATER FOTIS NIKOLAOU: ΤΑΜΑΤΑ (OFFERINGS)
Tamata (Offerings): Promises and tributes given to gods or saints in exchange for a grace, favour, or the fulfilment of a desire.
Six men, alone and defeated, are trying to find their new faith. In a timeless and isolated landscape, in a place where memory becomes a nightmare and the present a deep wound, they violently yet silently struggle to reunite with their body, their truth... the light.
The bodies fall, embrace, tremble, become immobile, breathe, shake, jolt, sway, fight, dance, crave, hope, promise and make a vow. Fleeting encounters that come and go and others that disappear for ever into the darkness, leaving them alone again with their passions, desires and fears and with them themselves as their only opponent.
A dark, pagan, yet at the same time poetic journey in search of identity, the need for tenderness and a feeling of belonging somewhere, to someone, coexisting. A melancholic journey, veiled in shadows and darkness, yet brimming with hopes, desires, impulses, fragments of memory and sudden, sharp shadows of light. A glance at the hidden desires and untold stories of the tender male soul.
