Concept/Direction/Performance: Dimitris Chimonas
Long durational performance
The performer will start at 15:00 from Heroes Square and he will be walking in the city. Final destination at “Sousami” 23:00.
In the following days/posts we will inform you about the various ways we can experience the performance.
If the act of creation is an attempt towards immortality, then each anniversary we celebrate is a repetition of our failure to reach it. Therefore every celebration is not a creation, but quite the opposite – an anti-creation. We celebrate mortality. We re-evaluate our past and project onto the future.
The ‘First Time of Time’ is a collective anti-creation. The performance will shape this real moment between now and now; the eternal moment of transition.
