The artistic duo kóka&panú perform in Kalamata for the first time with their latest creation materia. The piece unfolds inside a sound installation. An environment built of industrial materials, much like a city landscape, transforms into a projection of the nature that surrounds us. Cold metal embraces the warm human body. Motion is matter’s mode of existence: ‘to be’ means ‘to be in motion’. The two artists attempt to capture the archetypical relationship between music and dance through the connection between action and reaction. Movement creates sound, its eco feeds the moving body. Panú creates for the stage an impressive visual environment, a huge musical instrument that comes to life through the moving artistry of Konstantina Efthimiadou. The piece is a co-production of the Kalamata Dance Festival, with the support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports.
The 26th Kalamata Dance Festival will take place following the special instructions issued by the Ministry of Health, with priority given to public health and with a sense of responsibility towards the public and the artists.
