A solo piece and a self-portrait, Penelope: Dust in our awakened dreams is not just a dance but a poetic movement piece through which the body speaks. Penelope: Dust in our awakened dreams is a collaborative dance performance featuring Athansia Kanellopoulou with sound design by Mario Sammut, set design by Matthew Pandolfino, and directed by Jimmy Grima.
In the Greek Odyssey, Penelope is a symbol of faith, waiting and longing, whilst she threads and unthreads a shroud. This performance is the story of a female figure exiting a world that lies between tragedy and fairytale. Kanellopoulou’s quivering body is initially hesitant to uncover those fragments of the past burrowed deep in the vault of memories. As she traces voices of the past, we are lead through the labyrinth of her mind, until she arrives at the locket which holds her burrowed memories. Physically contorted, she faces up to reality. This is a journey in dance through past and present, a pushing of restless memories forward into light.
