Antigone’s Gyra solo, “We can do it”, performed by Aphrodite Vervenioti is going to be presented at Bite Size Pieces of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London.
Bite Size Pieces is an innovative dance platform designed by Trinity Laban, one of the most important dance conservatoire of Europe. Antigone Gyra graduated from Trinity Laban with distinction and she was awarded the Graduates’ Choreography award in 1993. She was selected with 3 more choreographers among 25 applicants from all over Europe to present on Saturday November 23rd at 18.30 the solo “We can do it”. It is performed by Aphrodite Vervenioti and is part of this year’s artistic research of Kinitiras “Femininity in transition”.
Premiered at Pocket Dance Festival in Thessaloniki, Greece in September 2019 the solo We Can Do It is inspired by the idea that all people are born good and focuses on the inner power of women. Being a woman involves different roles and identities that have to be balanced so that the woman finds her new role in this century. The woman as an artery that brings life, beauty and strength by using her abilities to be gentle, tender and hospitable to herself and others seems to help her to develop strength and femininity at the same time. This solo was created through a movement research on these ideas, in an effort to explore soft qualities in relation to balance and sharp movement.
