The piece explores the “birth-death” bipolar concept, through the medium of contemporary dance and live classical music.
Every birth, is the beginning of a new death and vice versa. The word birth itself encapsulates the word death. In each case, one abandons a form of existence for another.
The choreographer Marina Poyiadji and her creative team explore concepts of joy, grief and all feelings of primordial excitements connected with birth and death.
