22:00 13′ | Delightful Space – Panayiotis Tofi [Work In Progress]
‘Delightful Space’ is currently a work in progress, part of an ongoing movement research, concerning movement dialogues between body and space.
What kind of movement occurs when surrendered to the memory of what has been and the potential of what can be? What could be considered delightful during a silent kinesthetic journey of re-experiencing, reviving and allowing to be experienced? What does the body remember, what is it craving for?
As part of the Choreographic Residency Programme Moving the New 2017 at Dance House Lemesos
Panayiotis Tofi completed the Diploma for Dance Studies at Trinity Laban (2010) and the Bachelor of Contemporary Dance (2014) at the same conservatoire. As a performer he has collaborated with choreographers from U.K., Portugal, Belgium, Greece and Cyprus. He has worked as movement director with the theatrical groups Fresh Target Theatre (Paris Erotokritou), Paravan Proactions (Melita Kouta, Harry Kafkarides), Satirikon Theatre and the directors Neoklis Neokleous and Marios Kakoullis. Since 2014 he has been investigating in both movement and composition topics of body decentralization and spatial tension in relation to concealment, withdrawal and dispossession. His latest choreographic works have been: Never Been Missed (2017), Manly Matters (2016), Documenting Emptiness (2016), Faded Encapsulation (2016), Keep Hands Clear (2016), Turn Off Lights When Leaving (2015).
