Performance by Shalom Gorewitz & Rachel Hadas


DTTV is a series of short videos created since the 2016 US Presidential election, that attempt to identify the causes, symptoms, and solutions to dystrumpia, a condition marked by anxiety, sleeplessness, and fear, among other things. Davida and Gunlioth is an obvious reference to the Biblical story, but now it’s a woman wielding a slingshot in the forest in a battle with a man and a gun. Tina’s Favorite Song is a country music tune that teaches a stoic attitude with the help of Greek wisdom. Images for Drinking Song were recorded in a bar in Corfu and set to the opening earworm song of the opera La Traviata. The Russians Are Here superimposes mass events and rallies, national anthems, and competing proverbs. The Nuts Got Loose and the Merry Go Round Broke Down is dada inspired and set to Looney Tunes cartoon theme song.

Performance by Mathilde Melek An

Mathilde Melek An is a contemporary artist who questions cultural, sexual and territorial identity, memory, both collective and individual, and our relationship to legacy and its transmission through generations.

Delving into her own personal narrative and multicultural references, Mathilde Melek An tries to abolish the rigid borders of the established mediums by mixing together photography, photographic archives, video, sculpture, books, prints, installation and performance. In her work, the image links all these mediums, new modes of expression are explored and experimentation with new mediums makes a lasting image that is yet a perpetual echo of the past.

In a quest of origins, the image uncoils the thread of recounted stories and reveals the portrait of multicultural identities, our worldwide legacy.

The performance ‘The Glass Between’ takes us on an audio-visual journey while approaching the relationship between movement and sound through a simple object: A dividing glass. Evolving the elements of her doctoral thesis, Nefeli Stamatogiannopoulou is exploring ways in which the glass, a fragile but at the same time strong material, is capable of separating two worlds and to bring together the technics of music and movement in a creative dialogue. Actors, dancers, musicians and video artists all demonstrate on stage a continuous relation of boundaries and ideals with scripts inspired by diaries and reports of people who have experienced life in prison. The human bodies combined with the technology and the tone colour of the musical instruments, are constructing minute by minute a complete score with main objective the musical composition of The Glass Between.
