Mystery 59
U(R)TOPIAS Academy of Choreography

A great opportunity to rethink the art of choreography in Greece combined with the lack of educational opportunities for young choreographers.

2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture can be seen as a major chance to rethink the art of choreography in Greece, keeping in mind the lack of educational opportunities available to emerging choreographers. The U(R)TOPIAS Academy of Choreography conceived by Patricia Apergi and the Aerites Dance Company – an arts initiative rooted in dance creation and composition, and the exchange of knowledge and experience through an extensive cycle of workshops – is seeking to partly fill this gap. It is an art project that combines research, experimentation, and artistic results with information, knowledge, and creative tools offered up to its participants by eminent mentors – practitioners and professionals from the arts sector, historians and art theorists, and others. Six emerging choreographers, each driven by their own ideals, are presenting six original site-specific works in Elefsina’s public spaces as a result of this process.

During the course of the U(R)TOPIAS Academy of Choreography (December 2021–July 2023), Patricia Apergi and the Aerites Dance Company – working in dialogue with these emerging choreographers – aim to offer a comprehensive creative research and experimentation process, as well as the acquisition of knowledge relating to this artistic field and its practices.

Labor
The thematic axis of the artistic programme titled Labor explores the past and the present of work, the common European challenges of precariousness and the model of a contemporary sustainable economy, focusing on the pioneering linking of art with fields such as industry, science, technology and social innovation. Thus, it addresses another important feature of European cultural heritage, industry, which has been the basis of Europe’s development in the last few centuries. The thematic axis creates synergies between artists and businesses in various sectors as well as between artists and scientists, through three themes/notions: “The Future Starts Here”, “Culture My Profession/Culture My Hobby”, “Capacity Building and Applied Innovation Centre”.
