8 & 9/5/2015: L’antigonie @TripSpace Projects, London

A piece of contemporary music and dance by the Consensus Dance Company, attempting to re-contextualise the myth of Antigone. It explores the physicality of the characters as well as the embodiment of frustration and tragedy.

Choreographer Aline Derderian, in collaboration with composer Gregory Emfietzis (following their previous work Défigure sur la plage inerte that can be seen here) and the Metapraxis Ensemble, finds an opportunity to pay tribute to her Armenian origins for the hundred anniversary of the Armenian genocide of 1915. In the challenge that is diffusing contemporary performance towards Armenian community and vice versa, Consensus Dance Company showcased its work at TripSpace Projects, London on May 8th and 9th 2015, and on the 8th of October, in Yerevan (Armenia), during the HighFest 2o15 .

The development of this project has been generously supported by the Arts Council England.
