Neverland

2008

Elena Topalidou and Panayiotis Kontonis, two exceptional performers of Oktana Dancetheatre, cross their paths with Hip Hop dancer Yorgos Kostopoulos, to set up an idiosyncratic dialogue between the two dance genres. 

The performers move in a suffocating environment packed with everyday objects, a no man’s land where anything is possible. An astronaut crosses the stage drying his hair, a traveller carries his massive suitcase and reveals its odd contents. Fictional creatures appear onstage to participate in extreme situations, exposing the darkness that lies within us.
