22:30 40′ | Time Of Happy: – Eleana Alexandrou
Eleana is continuing her quest in songs and words slowly trying to find her way back to dance. ‘Back’, not as an act of returning, but as an act of slowing down, of redefining and getting in touch with the natural state. ‘Dance’, not as a combination of pre-decided movements, but a state of joy, of grounding and embodiment of the self as the self is.
Her new work has the form of a concert and she is making it in close collaboration with Panos Bartzis and Eva Korae.
Eleana Alexandrou obtained the DasArts Master of Theatre from the Amsterdam School of Arts in 2016. In 2009 she completed her BA in Dance and Choreography at Bath Spa University, UK. She has been working as a performer since 2004 and making her own work since 2011. She presented work at the Open House Festival in Limassol, the Athens Festival, the Come Together Festival in Amsterdam and the B.Motion of Operaestate in Italy. Since January 2017, she is the president of the organisation Cyprus New Movement of Dance Companies, Dancers and Choreographers.
