Drops of Peace is an outdoor performance combining dance and video screenings for viewers of all ages. The choreographers Sophie Bulbulyan, Lia Haraki and Apostolia Papadamaki (France, Cyprus, Greece) created Drops of Peace as a reflection on Drops of Breath, the world’s first underwater dance performance.
A walk in the performance site (garden, park, theater or other) provides an opportunity for viewers to experience their own journey, while watching the performers conjure memories inscribed during their underwater experience. The show begins as a game that involves both performers and audience. Through this experience of exploration small choreographic compositions emerge. As the encounter with nature and the environment becomes deeper, audience and performers alike participate in a sensory game of images and movement.
The original music composed by Trifon Koutsourelis, resonates the water into earth while the mesmerizing underwater images of Anastasis Agathos, are projected on bodies, walls, trees, doors or any other structure
A show that appeals to many senses, Drops of Peace is specifically re-created for the outdoor site where it is performed on each occasion. Performed by two Greek and three French dancers, a Cypriot dancer and a child.
