Premiere in Athens
Following the presentation of a short version during the 16th Kalamata International Dance Festival (2010), performance “In the Process of…” by the choreographer Zoi Dimitriou has its premiere in Athens, on Thursday, April 14th at Theatre Hall of Michael Cacoyannis Foundation, while it is going to be presented in its full length version for just three nights, on April 14th, 15th and 16th 2011.

In the Process of… is a beautifully crafted duet in which a man and woman negotiate a series of endings, rather than a single unfolding narrative leading to one’s story inevitable finale.

Manipulating movement parameters and playing with the myth of ‘the quest’ underlying the basic archetypical themes, a play of two emerges as a series of intermezzos to a story never told.

Sixty wooden hoops dramatically help and hinder the couple’s relationship on stage – and even at times become the sole protagonists.

In The Process of… draws upon Conlon Nancarrow’s compositional structures and studies into the effect of film figure movement and genre recognition.

REVIEWS

In the Process of… succeeds in its portrayal of ‘… a series of intermezzos to a story never told’. The protagonists’ emotions are so convincing and their presence so engaging….
londondance.com, In The Process of…, Bonnie Bird Theatre, 19 July 2010, by Katie Fish

Yet with Zoi’s work, that minimalism became beautiful, from her choice of aesthetic to the 60 wooden hoops that shared the space, as feelings were made visible through set. It’s really one to look out for in the future.
