Wherever you are on Friday 18/12, 2-5 p.m.(UTC+2) we will come to you, to watch together the works in progress created by our artists in Athens (Greece), Berlin (Germany), London (United Kingdom), Bukavu (Democratic Republic of the Congo) and Paris (France). Blaise, Emilie, Marilena and Patricia will be joining us! The webcast will be available on Kinitiras website.
An unpredictable online feast where you are the guests, the body is a tool to explore the condition of transition, where we are dancing with one foot in Europe and the other in Africa and where hope is not lost, even in the most difficult conditions, that’s what awaits you. Blaise Mangitukulu from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Emilie Vaudou from France, Marilena Sitaropoulou from Greece and Patricia Woltmann from Germany will prepare the workshops during the Residency program.
