THE SQUARE

[45 min dance performance]

Are fractals the answer to inner human geometry? This performance contemplates on the geometry of sentiments and the vanity of human rationalization.

Creation / Dance: Sofia Kondylia
Dramaturgy: Eleni Mloukie
Original music: Stefanos Barbalias
Graphic design: Konstantinos Argyriou

Attempting to grope the immeasurable geometry of feelings, she loops on the perimeter of an impeccable shape, the square. The square does not condone any mistakes and drives the individual to the quest of a never-ending pattern, of a structure within a structure, within a structure, on a seemingly infinite existence in between our familiar dimensions.

* Many thanks to my peers and teachers in ArtEZ University, Master of Theater Practices, for their support and constructive feedback.
