The popular team "And yet it moves", combines acrobatics with modern dance, but also circus with the art of theater.
This year, it appears for the second time in the context of the Athens-Epidaurus Festival, with a new work entitled ”9.25 ′, on 10-11 June at 9pm (Piraeus 260– Area D), for which spoke in Athens 9.84 and to Maria Pavlou, the choreographer-dancer Christina Sougioultzi, making special reference to the huge, impressive scene that dominates on stage but also to the difficulties they faced until they reach the desired result.
With three musicians on stage, the four performers share a transformative, apocalyptic journey, in a metaphor for the passage of time, the moments when you stop, look around and realize time is running and sweeping it all away.
"9.25" marks the time of departure of a train. It is a show that talks about time and that is why on stage there is a huge scene with two wheels that symbolize the time that is passing. It is one of the most difficult performances we have ever done. It is a big bet for us and it is very difficult to be able to coexist four people on this wheel that rolls with people on it. However, we are a very close-knit team, we have rehearsed countless times and now we are able to do it. ", stressed Ms. Sougioultzi.
She did not hide that she is concerned about the sense of fear that has spread to a large portion of the audience about socializing and gathering, noting that the venue has an open roof and all protection measures are observed.
"There has been a long period of silence due to the pandemic, but places and people do not cease to exist. We tried to stay active. For us, socializing is the core of our life and work and I am worried about the fear that remains due to the pandemic in a large part of the world. On the other hand, when you lack something, you look for it, so I do not know which of these will prevail. But I believe in the people who will make the move to come to the theater. I hope the show communicates ".
