Patricia Apergi/Aerites Dance Company (GR)

Preview "Planites"

The choreographer Patricia Apergi from Athens provides insights into her latest work that will have its premiere in Dresden two weeks after the Düsseldorf preview. As in her previous peaces she focuses on man in metropolis. The homeless and the nomads on the run are at the centre of this production for five dancers. In dynamic scenes Apergi shows the travelers on the search for their own selves and meeting others. The Aerites Dance Company, founded by Apergi in 2006, is well known for its interdisciplinary work, combining contemporary dance, performance, literature, theater and new media.
