With her first duet, Katerina Andreou continues her investigations around free choice and the notion of effort. Along with dancer Natali Mandila, she develops a singular rhythmical language, translated in unison by two twin bodies.
Zeppelin Bend originates in the hours of isolation imposed by the Covid-19 crisis, and attests to the friendship between Katerina Andreou and Natali Mandila. The Greek choreographer, who is associate artist with the Caen CCN, continues her exploration of physical practices and questions free choice on stage again. How do we prepare for a particular performance, for a particular struggle, which efforts are made and to what end? These questions animate the staging and the minimalistic scenography: a mat and two ropes, which recall the zeppelin node the piece is named after, and which is used to connecting two ropes, particularly for airships. Through this rhythmical and acrobatic performance, Katerina Andreou and Natali Mandila build a physical language based on effort and the various states it induces, and they connect dances, actions and sounds that engage both a great discipline and a psychedelic imagination. They attempt to connect with reality while concentrating on the creating bodies and trying to find moments of freedom.+ More
