En drasi presents the performance Say yes! again and again created by Evie Demetriou with the performers Eleftheria Sokratous, Bas van der Kruk and Rania Glymitsa at Theatro Dentro, in Nicosia and at the Rialto Theatre, in Limassol.


Say Yes! again and again is a performance exploring topics of identity and gender in a playful and empowering way. 


Three performers of different nationalities, using movement and text, share personal experiences that shaped them as persons, as a way to explore social norms, queer subjectivities and normative pressures. The research for the performance started with the work Say Yes!, which has since been reworked and expanded to the performance Say Υes! again and again.


The work is part of the choreographers’ ongoing research to address social justice issues. While she envision performances as the start of a dialogue with the audience she explores various performative ways to engage with body politics in the performance.  Ιnspired by Maree Brown’s book Pleasure Activism (Brown,2019) and the optimistic and empowering way she addresses activism.  She therefore engages in the performance with positivity and empowerment to saying Yes to ourselves and our needs.
