DAME DE PIC / CIE KARINE PONTIES
A ramshackle heron, trussed up in its feathers, perched on a peak. A snake eagle swirling in large, paced circles before it collapses. This is their wild side.
Nothing defines human beings better than their tendency to accomplish absurd acts in order to obtain results that are just as improbable. In a world where reason is a nice façade, the bursting in of non-sense brings us to confront our relationship with normalcy and allows us to open up to untrodden paths. Somewhere between burn out and brown out, two women, exposed to each other, like a palindrome in a distorting mirror, lose their direction and reignite their innate wild animal.
In this unexpected duo, theatre director Petra Tejnorová shares the stage with leading creative dancer Tereza Ondrová. Their joint interest in exploring the boundaries of subtle humour, irony, and absurdity, while respecting the intricacies of human relationships, is underlined by the directorial-choreographic leadership of choreographer Karine Ponties, who present her work in Greece for the first time. Inspired by Buster Keaton, they move us with their depth and sincerity, despite the lightness of the form.
