Elvedon flows forwards driven by precise rhythm and slinky, shifting movement patterns. A wrinkled harmony is created by six dancers as their vibrating bounces and subtle micro-movements build into a solid, but fluid whole image. Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s The Waves, the performance distils the intertwined narratives of the book into an essential meditation on the passing of time.
Elvedon, by the Greek artist Christos Papadopoulos, is one of the works selected by the network Aerowaves and performed at Romaeuropa festival, also hosted during Bmotion Dance 2016 @operaestate festival – via #ABCDance
