The Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival continues with Elena Antoniou’s LANDSCAPE

The program of the 23rd Contemporary Dance Festival continues on Monday June 6 with the performance LANDSCAPE by Elena Antoniou, which has been selected as the Cypriot participation in the Festival.

In this solo performance, Elena Antoniou unashamedly manifests herself in order to shed light on personal experience as a collective landscape. She happily overexposes the female body and pushes the boundaries of the show by skillfully and intentionally inviting the viewer’s gaze. In LANDSCAPE, Antoniou creates the space and environment for the body politic to exist as deeply traumatized, yet superficially sexual.

Elena Antoniou is a dance and performance artist from Cyprus. She graduated from the Greek National School of Dance and from the London Contemporary Dance School “The Place” as a member of the dance company Edge. She was a scholarship holder of the Koula Pratsika Foundation and ImpulsTanz Vienna’s Danceweb program. His work has been presented in Berlin, Athens and Tel Aviv in collaboration with organizations such as Onassis Stegi, Marina Abramovic Institute, NEON Greece and Athens and Epidaurus Festival. She has also collaborated, as a choreographer and director of movements, with directors and theater companies in Greece and Cyprus. Since 2021, she has been collaborating with internationally renowned artist and choreographer Maria Hassabi. She received the Choreography Award at the Cyprus Theater Awards in 2008 for the play Diary of a mad man, and was nominated for the same award in 2011 for the play Beckettx5.
