Poetics of Space in Athens for two performances

Poetics of Space

After the sold-out shows in Thessaloniki, Die Wolke's Poetics of Space travels to Athens for two shows on May 11 and 12!

A cast of four dancers of different ages invites us to a dive into familiar sensations, where we will search for what makes our space personal through poetry, movement, images, and sounds.

Based on the like-titled 1958 seminal text by Gaston Bachelard, the performance revolves around the experience of intimate spaces. The house, shelters, nests, hiding places, and other spaces where we can withdraw into ourselves, evoke poetic images, immediate environmental perceptions that precede conscious thought, imbuing it with properties beyond function and form, and affording the observer a state of daydreaming.

The dancetheatre piece by Die Wolke, creators of The Tempest, Δtopia, and Trajectory of an Idea, explores the concept of intimacy and its relation to the function of inhabiting, tracing it back to memories of our childhood home. Thus, it adapts one of the most important philosophical tendencies of the 20th century and a fundamental influence to contemporary architecture.

Die Wolke’s interpretation of the text presents a selection of images derived from the book. From the spiral forms that are traced back to the evolution of life, to the psychology of the attic and the cellar, choreographer Drosia Triantaki creates spaces of lived experience at different points in time: past, present, and future, bound together by the daydream. Abstracts from the book are heard during the performance, with Greek translations projected.

The production of Poetics of Space has the support of the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
