Άπειρη Στοργή// Infinite Affection [Part 1] is the first installation of a new dance collaboration between first and third generation Greek migrants. Part-performance, part-ritual, this show is a lament that unearths the joy and sorrow spoken through dance.
This webstage showcases the development process of a new, two-person dance performance devised by Luke Macaronas, a 23-year-old emerging theatre and movement artist of Greek descent, and Christos Konstantinidis, a 67-year-old dancer with extensive training in Greek folk dance. Macaronas and Konstantinidis are deconstructing and reimagining a series of Greek dances, accompanied by a live band of Melbourne-based Greek folk musicians. Uncover their inspirations and motivations, and leave your trace in this infinite lament of changing languages, movements, memories and intimacy between migrants and their children.
