ALL THAT MATTER
*or notes on performing friendship
arisandmartha is the creative collaboration between dancers, performers and markers Aris Papadopoulos and Martha Pasakopoulou. Based in Athens they work in the crossroads of dance, performance and site-specific exploring togetherness, friendship and otherness on stage, while experimenting on movement and performative tools under different conceptual ideas. Flexible and open to the double identity of performer - maker their work explores the ever-occurring question of discovering new creative grounds with each performative encounter. Together they have created the works touching.just (Aerowaves 2018 selection), 5 Steps to Save the World (Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2018), and Lucy. tutorial for a ritual (Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2019, 25th Kalamata International Dance Festival 2019). They have been supported by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports (2018-22), FLUXUM Foundation - Geneva, KLAP Maison pour la danse - Marseille and Duncan Dance Research Center - Athens.
After its successful premiere in April arisandmartha are staging again their last work titled ALL THAT MATTER or notes on performing friendship for three more shows at the Former Industrial Park PLYFA on May 20, 21 and 22.
NOTE: Two years since their last production Lucy. tutorial for a ritual, the collaboration between Martha Pasakopoulou and Aris Papadopoulos is in its essence put under the microscope and is examined as an attempt to perform friendship on stage. The two interpreters, but also friends, collaborators and artistic partners, delve into a common archive of movement material, dance practices and notes, which while drawing from the past is being constructed on stage. In the process of finding out what really matters, they re-shape it, reintroduce themselves and bring to surface that intangible in-between space. “The property of neither, the potentiality of both”. The audience is present as yet another viewpoint, a reflector of the duo’s friendship and its need to be witnessed.
