Still Life  French première


THE SIMPLICITY OF HUMAN LABOUR
CHOREOGRAPHER OF THE 2004 ATHENS OLYMPIC GAMES AND PIONEER OF CONEMPORARY DANCE IN GREECE, DIMITRIS PAPAIOANNOU IMAGINES THE CONSTANT STRUGGLE WITH THE MATERIAL.


The torture of Sisyphus, condemned to continuously push the same rock without ever reaching the summit. Choreographer Dimitris Papaioannou has chosen the more joyful version by Albert Camus – “The struggle itself against the summits is enough to fill a man’s heart”. Likewise, is the “work of creation” ever complete? In STILL LIFE, it’s without ostentatious effect that Dimitris Papaioannou imagines this constant struggle with the material. Under a great canopy of clouds that create a feeling of the cosmos on the stage, struggling with a stone block that’s cracking and falling to pieces, the dancers hold on to the void while creating images where one can find the simplicity of human labour.
