VENUS un/seen

17.7 | 19:30 | 55’, Kalamata Dance Megaron - Black Box



For ten days, from 15 to 24 July 2022, leading Greek and international artists will be showing their work to art lovers from all over the world. We look forward to share with you the experience of this major artistic event, the 28th edition of the Kalamata Dance Festival.



A body tries to rebuild an existence in a new environment, to adapt to it and to define itself anew. While doing so, the body carries remnants from its previous journey – memories, images, impressions, relationships. It seems as though the moving body has been thrown into a new reality during this ongoing post-pandemic moment, according to Düsseldorf-based choreographer and artist Alexandra Waierstall. As an accomplished choreographer, she has fine tuned a poetic and affecting way to engage us with seemingly contradictory and hard to name emotions, through exquisite collaborations which create a world both deeply experiential and thought provoking.

She attempts to explore specific factors in a new world, such as spatiality, temporality and relationships, in her new solo VENUS un/seen for the stunning dancer Karolina Szymura – accompanied by the musical composition of renowned Düsseldorf composer and pianist Volker Bertelmann, a.k.a. HAUSCHKA. This investigation occurs through the lens of memory, of absence, the lens of the blatant and of indecision. To find a language for this transformational process, Alexandra Waierstall decides to trust the body’s perceptive capabilities instead of the certainty granted by the eyes. The dancing body collects, remembers, connects and imagines – while its broken existence and vulnerability are neither hidden nor ignored; the fragmented self will instead be dignified and celebrated because it transforms into the new terrain, into the new reality.

An open invitation to contemplate, process and most of all feel through our times.

The presentation of VENUS un/seen at the 28th Kalamata Dance Festival is supported by the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ International Guest Performance Fund for Dance, which is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
