Description

On their last visit, choreographers Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero thrilled Luxembourg audiences by turning the stage into a boxing ring. This time, as part of the Greek Focus, they offer Lamenta, dance theatre inspired by traditional Greek mourning songs.

Many societies once expressed collective grief through music and dance but those rituals are disappearing. The "miroloi? songs of sorrow still heard in Epirus in northern Greece prompted the eminent dance duo to explore a dying tradition.

Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero have both worked extensively with Les Ballets C de la B and work together under the name of Siamese Cie. For Lamenta, they have created a company of nine contemporary dancers from different regions of Greece to pool their histories, traditions and techniques to re-energise the old rituals and create out of them new expression - of emotion and of dance.
