∞therside gathered for a 2 week creative residency at the Stavros Village Cultural Center in Stavros, Greece. Joined by local musicians, Giorgios Kalamakis and Sokrates Votskos, we studied greek folk dances and rhythms and incorporated elements of those into our work. We performed an evening length work, less is more, for 2 nights at Studio 29A in Thessaloniki and shared 3 days of workshops with local dance students there. We also toured to neighboring city, Drama to perform in their traditional amphitheater, curated as special guests for of an evening of improvisation.
This close-knit gathering of performers helped cement the collective’s core group, resulting in the creation of our (wo)manifesto organizing document and the formalization of our commitment to each other as a permanent collective.
