ΣΑΚΡΑ The new work by Alexis Vassiliou at Rialto Theatre on 19th of June, for two performances

In his new work ΣΑΚΡΑ, Alexis Vassiliou continues the research he began in 2020 with the creation of the short film entitled ΕΓΚΑΤΑ, attempting to reconstruct a rhythmic, acoustic, and bodily ritual on the origins of language, emotions and the human experience. Having as references the most identifiable melodic and rhythmic motives of Igor Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, the performance seeks to reconstruct through the process of abstraction and fragmentation the starting point of life - as the seven performers are in a constant effort to activate the basic functions of the breath, the voice and the mechanism of movement.
