Created within the frame of the Terpsichore program 2023 by the Ministry of Culture and in collaboration with the Rialto Theatre.
For the past few years, Milena and the dancers she collaborates with, are investigating how trauma affects us and the way traumatic experiences shape our communication and relation with others as well as our perception of our surroundings. As a continuation of this research and choreographic work on trauma, in the new piece "Grandmothers" Milena and the dancers explore the ability to recover from the trauma, ways to cope with it, adapt and modify themselves well in the face of adversity. In "Grandmothers" we try to discover what resilience is.
