Renowned choreographer Ermira Goro, a familiar name to Festival audiences, returns with her new piece: a spellbinding performance, a true experience on the primeval and ever-cherished concept of rituals. Via six dancers and Stavros Gasparatos’ original musical composition, this work explores how contemporary art may be part of the quest for, or better put, the invention of “new” rituals necessary for our survival. As dramaturg Anastasios Koukoutas notes: “In an era where ‘rituals’ have become individualized and detached from the fabric of community how do we detect the physical memory that exists in all authentic rituals and what part of it exactly survives?
