THE BOX || that dead space between us

of Penelope Morout

Dance Performance

Korytsas 39, Votanikos 

2-2-4.12.2022 | 21:00  

THE BOX stands. It opens. It transforms. 

THE BOX reveals the body, it devours it. 

It sets boundaries, only for the body to surpass them. 

Inside THE BOX, time dilates, space fluctuates.

Inside THE BOX, encounters emerge. 

Re-defining physical interaction under a state of suspension. 


THE BOX || that dead space between us lures us into an underground journey between the real and the virtual, between the light and the shadow, between our deepest desires and our utmost fears. Oscillating between remembrance and oblivion, this performance is a pursuit of self-identification, a retrieval sense of purpose, of time, of human nature through tactile communication.

THE BOX || that dead space between us was created with the financial support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports for 2021-2022.

In 2021, Penelope Morout founded the Cross iMPact Company, an organization which emerged from the deep belief that artistic innovation can be found in the meeting points between diverse art forms and techniques and that art is capable of producing a fundamental impact, in both the individual and the community.


A graduate of the National School of Dance (Athens) and the National Technical University of Athens – School of Architecture (Athens), with a Master’s degree in Theatre Practices from ArtEZ University of the Arts (The Netherlands), Penelope Morout is an interdisciplinary dance artist interested in creating hybrid projects through the fusion of various mediums. As a dancer & performer, she has collaborated professionally with JUKSTA Company, director Kostas Filippoglou (Athens and Epidaurus Festival), So7 Company and since 2018 she has been working with theatre companies as a director/choreographer/scenographer. Within the years, she has evolved “Sculpting Body-Images” workshop, a dance improvisation technique which she shares around the world (MUDA Arts Centre/Belgium, Murate Art District/Italy, KDF/Greece, Munus Encuentro/Mexico). As a filmmaker, she has collaborated with TANZAHOi International Screendance Festival Hamburg and has participated in international exhibitions and video dance & dance animation festivals around the world (Italy, Brazil, France, Greece, Indonesia).

For her previous work H.I.I.T. | High-Intensity Identity Training, Penelope used herself as a case-study experiment for a year and her latest performance THE BOX || that dead space between us has received funding from the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports for 2021-2022. She continues to seek for her personal development by participating systematically in workshops around Europe, including a series of Fighting Monkey | RootlessRoot workshops.
