The Actions

Drops of Breath

underwater dance performance

Drops of Breath is the world’s first underwater dance performance, envisioned & created by French choreographer Sophie Bulbulyan and Greek choreographer Apostolia Papadamaki.

In an underwater “theatre”, nine abled performers, three disabled performers and three children from France, Greece and Cyprus make the impossible possible,aiming to spread the values of equality and fraternity on the surface of the Earth. 

Drops of Breath invites three types of audience in one performance:
Diving audience, Snorkeling audience and Screen audience.
The original music score by Trifon Koutsourelis based on strings, resonates through underwater speakers and offers an immersive sound experience.
The set design, a circle of 14m diameter, similar to an ancient Greek amphitheater,created by Giorgos Georgiou visualizes artistry in its purest form.
The first presentation of the project, involved 150 project contributors from 12 countries and used 3.600 hours of underwater dance training.

Drops of Breath, an ultimate art experience that alters the perception of time and space, received enormous media attention worldwide.

Eyes Wide Open

a cultural encounter with projections , performance, discussions, about human and environmental values.

The arts can help people connect and communicate by using predominantly their body and senses. Opening our eyes in order to really see, “opening” our ears in order to listen carefully, “opening” up ourselves in order to “fit” each other and “move” towards the other these are actual preconditions for a communication on equal terms.
