The performance Fantastic Women by Kinitiras Dance Company returns renewed to the Roes theatre after the very successful spring performances, for 5 nights only, with the aim of celebrating, once again, women’s existence and femininity of people.
After three years of choreographic research on female nature and femininity in transition, in collaboration with important institutions and studios, Kinitiras Dance Company presents the performance Fantastic Women. The research was carried out in Greece and abroad- Switzerland, Israel, Great Britain- in beaches, mountains, living rooms, studios, airplanes and the routes between them.
In 2019, Antigone Gyra launched a series of solos, which she co-created together with some of her constant collaborators-muses. Some of these solos were presented to a limited audience and some were not. The joy of being a woman, the strength with which your nature has endowed you, resilience, humor and the female body as a vessel for people, emotions, thoughts and dreams were explored in this process. Meanwhile, in 2022, Antigone Gyra returned to the stage after twenty-six years with the solo “ehS came from another planet” in collaboration with Amalia Bennett; a solo that speaks to all her previous work.
The material from these solos was reworked by the choreographer, in close collaboration with the dancers, additionally inviting Danae Omoregie-Neanthi, Penelope Pyrrou from the group Kinitiras Ω (Omega) and Christos Polymenakos as a dramaturgy consultant, so that a new project is being created.
