The Flux Laboratory Athens on the occasion of World Peace Day organizes a dance action - a tribute to the leading composer Mikis Theodorakis.
World Peace Day was established by the United Nations in 1981 to spread and promote the ideals of peace and non-violence among nations. Flux Laboratory Athens chose this day to honor the universality and sensitivity of the work of Mikis Theodorakis, who passed away on September 2, passing into eternity as a musical symbol of peace and democracy.
Drawing on the song "We are two", choreographer and dancer Markella Manoliadis invited 20 dancers to work together in a separate performance intended for the public space. Today, Tuesday, September 21, at 18.30, they will unite to dance in Agia Irini Square as a symbolic act open to the public.
"We are a vast, deep river that is constantly deepening, that is constantly widening and enriching as it moves towards this endless, wide sea, which is global cooperation in a world peace, sharp, solid, final."
