ADIEU - An act of farewell @Rialto Theatre, 14 December
The well known Cypriot Choreographer Fotis Nicolaou presents a performance dealing with farewells and separation. How do we say goodbye? How do we part from someone? How do we deal with this emptiness? How do we manage our choices and experience the moment they happen? How can we seize the intangible moment and transform the ephemeral into something that will be residing inside us forever? How do we deal with the fluidity and instability of our existence in order to stand strong against the inevitable, against the end? That is why we say: “adieu, see you tomorrow, see you soon”. Concept – Choreography: Fotis Nikolaou Set and Costume Design: Elena Kotasvili, Alexis Vayianos Sound design: Yiannis Christofides Lighting Design: Panayiotis Manousis On stage: Fotis Nikolaou and Katerina Tylliridou
