ANDREAS HANNES

WARPING SOUL

30/9

Municipal Theater of Piraeus, 21.30

ATHENS PREMIERE
DURATION: 20'

In Warping Soul, Andreas Hannes explores the dynamics of bouncing and warping* and questions the body’s agency.

The dancers emerge within a space that is constantly in transit and, at the mercy of external forces, they move within movement. Through the disorientation and reorganization of bodies and space, the choreographer explores their special binding, intensifies their mutual magnetism, and ultimately creates a tantalizing atmosphere for an otherworldly dance.

Warping Soul was inspired by the practice of continuous skipping (as in skipping down the street) that Andreas Hannes has been developing since 2017. Key elements of his practice were road-trips, transiting landscapes and aerodynamic forces.

* to warp: to bend or turn from the (original) direction or course

BIOGRAPHY

Growing up in a musical environment, Andreas Hannes (Greece, 1987) danced extensively in the living room. After completing his studies in classical percussion at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki (Greece), he moved to the Netherlands to follow his passion for film. He worked as an independent director and producer of short films and he co-founded Small House Productions, a platform for international and interdisciplinary projects (2011-2015). In 2018, he graduated from SNDO (School for New Dance Development) with the performance The City, in which he showcased the practice of continuous skipping. He won the Moving Forward Trajectory 2018 and the Young Art Support Amsterdam 2019, and produced the skipping sequel Tremble. In 2020, he won the BNG DansPrijs and created Warping Soul, a commission from Conny Janssen Danst, nominated by Dansateliers, and in collaboration with Korzo. Currently, Hannes is artist in residence at Julidans and at ICK Dans Amsterdam, where he created Reverberated Emissions (2021) with the ensemble of the company. He also collaborates with Cinedans FEST in Amsterdam as artistic programmer and producer.
