In the Framework:

The Climbing Over Elefsina programme, run under the artistic direction of Eleftherios Kechagioglou, directed by Gaëtan Levêque, and choreographed by Christina Sougioultzi, brings together three Greek contemporary dance and circus artists from the “Ki Omos Kineitai” (And Yet It Moves) company with five circus artists and three musicians from France’s Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde (The Littlest Circus in the World) – that renowned school of the “dangerous arts” also known for its international arts exchanges – to create a work inspired by the inhabitants and urban landscapes of Elefsina and Bagneux, France.

This collective work is being realised in Elefsina’s communal spaces, with rehearsals open to be viewed by the public. In sum, this major work of artistic research and creation gathers together artists from the fields of contemporary dance, contemporary circus, and eastern and western Mediterranean music, all from Greece and France, for the creation of arts actions about public and private space, urban planning, and the multicultural social fabric of suburban cities. The initial research phases of this action were undertaken in October 2021 and June 2022.

People - Society
The first axis spans the evolution of society from Antiquity to the present in order to connect the strange with the familiar, to discover hidden aspects, memories and elements of cultural diversity. The thematic axis People | Society focuses on inclusion, the way that European society is shaped and, the ways in which we interact with each other, through the three themes/notions “Europe of Citizens”, “Europe, Daughter of Phoenix” and “Human Mysteries”.
