RootlessRoot feat: KIKERU
Onassis Cultural Centre |

In Kireru,  which means ‘outburst’ in Japanese, the white landscape of the stage set will be seared by a white hot wave of anger. A sea of white plastic cutlery will noisily recede as the eight wonderful dancers from five different countries who collaborate with RootlessRoot bring their high voltage, untrammeled, exhilaratingly liberating dance to the stage. Encompassing both the nostalgic and the harsh, Parish’s music will accompany a performance/manifesto which begins with the statement: “First, we will devour all your horses”. In Kireru, dance and sculpture become one as, expressing our innermost fears about the world in a constant struggle, the dancers constantly refashion a stage set made of soft clay with the energy they release. In the state of terrifying pressure in which we live and in which we are all victims and perpetrators at one and the same time, RootlessRoot choose to dream of the moment when the mental boundaries of the civilized Westerner snap, allowing the body to express itself with absolute freedom.

Kireru premieres at the OCC, Athens, and then will tour around Europe
