dance throughout the year
Dance Throughout the Year aims to adjoin the Cyprus Contemporary Dance Platform programme, by enriching the festival’s programme with works that were presented during the previous year in Cyprus and therefore support and promote, alongside with the Platform, the artistic work of the creators. The Cyprus Contemporary Dance Platform is organized by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and
Culture and the Rialto theatre since 2001, while the performances of Dance Throughout the Year -an initiative of Dance House Lemesos-are part of the festival’s programme since 2008.
Since 2017 Dance House Lemesos collaborates with Blast Collective for the project Blast from the Past: a retrospective to the fuure, as part fo the artistic programme of Dance Throughout the Year.

To wait is to expect and to anticipate, sometimes the known, sometimes the unknown. In this work, we are in search of the ways we distract ourselves while waiting. Do we trick ourselves away from time or are we tricked by time? In waiting, the borders between past and future can blur, hiding the present and eliminating the lines between the real and the unreal.

Why do we still wear invisible masks? Can a mask of money, muscles or makeup, ever truly cover our skin? At some point the mask will crack.
At the end, we are all humans.
Presentation: Avgoustina Stylianou
At the Performance: “ΑΠΟ-Κάλυψη” (Un-Covering), you will witness a journey towards self-acceptance and the acceptance of diversity. Through this immersive experience and the performer’s continuous research, you will also come in contact with your true self.

Biophony [Bio (Life) + Phon (Sound)].
This idea is inspired by nature, animals, humanity and their melody. In what ways two dancers can become? Trust, feel each other and let themselves go. They become the melody of a bird that is the music of the soul. These two voices, these two bodies think beyond their ego.
They breathe and move as ‘One’.
