‘A line, a gaze, a horizon’ At Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival 2023

Τhe choreographer investigates in form and content the recent experience we had of creating dance under social distancing. However, she extends her discourse to questions concerning art itself today, to the dialogue that is created between the living and the mediated art, the art that reaches the viewer through the mediation of the screen. How does the present body exist on stage and how does it function when it is projected on the screen?

Alexandra Waierstall is an artist and choreographer from Cyprus based in Düsseldorf. She has an MA in Choreography from Artez, The Netherlands.
