 Art/Performances 

Reverie
Date: Tuesday 04 February 2020
Venue: Hellenic Centre, 16-18 Paddington Street, W1U 5AS
Details: ‘Reverie’ is a journey into the subconscious; a deep dive into a world surrounded by surreal images and symbols, revealing stories of darkness, irony, fantasy and delusion. Through a narrative that follows the structure of a dream, where temporal flow is constantly interrupted, ‘Reverie’ aims to
question our certainties and threaten our established logic. Choreographers Georgia Tegou & Michalis Theophanous create powerful dance performances that inhabit highly visual environments. Influenced by architecture, sculpture and the visual arts, they use the movement of bodies to portray narratives of the human condition. The end result is a blend of contemporary dance, visual physical theatre and performance art.
