“Physical Landscape” | Federica Dauri
Contemporary dance performance as part of the Larnaca Biennale.
The Biennale Larnaca and Tina Agency invite you to a unique performance featuring 8 professional dancers from Cyprus and abroad as part of the Larnaca Biennale 2021 parallel events! The performance will take place at the end of a free 10-day dance rehearsal held from November 10 through November 20 at the Deborah’s School of Russian Ballet/Contemporary and Character by the famous performance artist and choreographer Federica Dauri (Italy) and Tina Agency co-founder and choreographer Giacomo Della Marina (Italy), in which the 8 professional dancers were selected to participate.
During this time of abstinence from shows and performances, Federica Dauri has given much thought to the role of our bodies in this complex historical moment that we are living in due to the pandemic. Our bodies are not only mechanical or personal/subjective, but above all societal. Our bodies are sensitive, with memory, and are simultaneously material and immaterial. Finally, the body is the surface of indelible marks of time where each individual’s history is imprinted. After the performance, Federica Dauri and the dancers will share their workshop experience and invite members of the audience with a professional interest in dance to participate in a creative discussion on choreographic methods.

The iPED program is the continuation of the successful OPENFLR program that was held during the first edition of the Larnaca Biennale in 2018. Its primary purpose is to provide opportunities for professional dancers from countries with limited access to contemporary dance training and performance opportunities to develop, network, and participate in productions abroad through special courses and seminars.
