«GAIA - be the bee»
a dance-theatre performance by Fysalida Dance - fysalidance.com
Fysalida Dance presents its new dance-theater production “GAIA - be the bee” in CRETAquarium (Gournes, Crete) on October 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 20:00.
The project “GAIA-be the bee” tells us stories about the illusive love of power, the cost of the capitalization of all things and human disorientation as we move away from the arms of Mother Earth.
"Gaia" presents an original chronicle of human society, of our relationship with nature and fellow human beings, of female existence in a constant struggle for emancipation and survival. The performance focuses on female figures traveling in time, transforming the definition of female nature and the natural environment by following the "dogmas of the times"... or perhaps they define them?
In this particularly aquatic eco-artistic journey we will have as companions the Snake Goddess and other primitive and modern characters that emerge from times that we associate with innocence, romance, harmony with nature. We are witnessing their mutation, martyrdom, revival, even their death, hoping to experience a kind of renaissance that will co-ordinate with humility and reverence, awe and gratitude to the divine natural phenomena and the rich goods of Mother Earth.
