History of site and related water issues
This beautiful green camp and golden beach were transformed into a lifeless concrete hotel. On June 15th, we danced for safe water, for clean sandy beaches open to the public, and for respecting our natural resources.
Nikos Touliatos – Athanasios Giannopoulos (Saki) – Christos Alatzidis
Having the camp’s entrance as their starting point, dancers shape different geometrical formations: an undefined mob is transformed into a circle and straight lines. A painter draws the dance on the street. Some bodies move in “waterish” free flow and light weight during their way to the sea. Others move in a quick and direct way. Once all volunters are on the beach having the warm sand underneeth their feet, they get to have the entire world as their dance partner and move the Global Water Dances pattern. At that point audience joins the dance!
